Very disappointed. I feel she glosses over subject without providing any solutions. I would not recommend this video.

I am thankful I saw this new class. I have had difficulty in knowing how to measure and cut fabric because I am left handed and the problems I had were explained away. The need to use a wall board helped me to visibly define what I wanted my quilt to look like. Everything Becky covered was what I needed to help me complete my quilt. I will look at it again.
