I thought the class was ok. I felt that there was a little too much actual sewing. The sewing of almost the entire item was rather boring. The instructions were very clear, but again, too much actual sewing.

I thoroughly enjoyed the class and look forward to revisiting it from time to time. After seeing the videos, I purchased the beginner free motion quilting class which I've not finished watching. I've picked up tips along the way. Wendy has a great manner and explains herself well. She's sewing on a Bernina which also helps me for I just purchased a new one with a stitch regulator. I WANT to free motion quilt with ease and I'm practicing all sorts of things suggested by Wendy, but also things from other videos I've seen on line. I'm realizing at last that my thread should be 50 to 60 weight. I learned that my Bernina has a way to secure the stitches at the beginning and at the end of quilting. I had not read that in my manual nor had I learned that in the tutorial that I took regarding the machine. (Though I expect it was taught. I think I was overwhelmed....) I appreciate how Wendy emphasizes that straight line quilting with a walking foot can give beautiful results to a quilt. Her artsy place mats really are good examples of that. So, thank you, Wendy for your help!
