Craftsy Review: The Secrets of Free-Motion Quilting

Super excited to review the craftsy classes I've bought you can see the classes I've reviewed Craftsy Class Review.  

In this post, I'll review The Secrets of Free-Motion Quilting
with Christina Cameli that blogs over at A Few Scraps

What I learned - It might just be the part of my quilting journey I am at, but this class broke down free motion quilting into a way that things are just clicking.  Free motion gets better with practice but I needed someone to help me break things down and with some fantastic new ideas -- this is "THE" class.

Seeing the techniques stitched is mesmerizing.  I find myself guessing where I would make these designs if I were quilting.  The teacher, Christina, was able to stop and point out things she thinks about while she quilts.  What I really enjoyed, there were many times she was talking while sewing that felt much more organic and what happens in person.

Pretty much this class rocked my world.  

Teacher - Christina Cameli is great on camera.  Christina shows the quilting techniques and also encouraged us to try while she was going along.  The hours of breaking down different motifs went fast and makes me want to add a lot more to my FMQ projects. I feel she is 100% knowledgeable with this topic. 

Class Content - This class includes 7 different pattern design families.  While this isn't a class on how to prepare for your first free-motion quilting project, I have had that in a few different classes. The techniques on free motion quilting Christina presents are clear and super helpful.

I did want patterns to all her projects she was working least there is one found over on Sew Mama Sew. I'm so making these!!

Rating - Blah - So So - Like - Love this class.

I love this class. I purchase this class during the craftsy super sale based on other reviews..and I'm so glad I did.

I would recommend this class to a beginning-intermediate level free motion quilter.

I would buy this class again and again.  I've already watched this 3 times from video to video. I even got in a little it!

After watching the @becraftsy class on FMQ with @afewscraps I am practicing and enjoying the new techniques.

  1. I purchased this class recently too. I've only had time to watch the first lesson, and I agree with your review. I love it too!

  2. Thanks for the honest review! I've been eyeing her class for a while now, but for some unknown reason I don't click on "Buy." I would definitely consider myself in the beg/int category, so this just might be exactly what I need.

    Merry Christmas!
