I loved this class. Although I have taken other Annie's classes this one gave me the courage to actually mark my quilt and go for gold. Nancy's way of teaching is very demonstrative and easy to follow. Nancy gives you the support you need to be able to mark your quilt with the correct tools. You won't be disappointed.
