Oops! I Won a Craftsy Class!
Sandy, at Quilting for the Rest of Us Podcast & Blog just celebrated her 4th Podcastiversary (podcast anniversary).
This is where the Oops! in this blog title comes in.
The contest was set to run through Sunday, April 6th, but on Tuesday, April 1st, I received an e-mail from Craftsy telling me that they drew my name as the winner of the free class. Yeah me! But like I said, the contest was set to run for several more days. They notified Sandy at the same time and she immediately let Craftsy know that the contest was not yet over, so they generously drew another winner at the end of the contest.
So, what class did I choose?
With Courtenay Hughes
The class consists of 7 lessons.
Lone Star Pillow Top
Four Color Lone Star Quilt
Continuing the Four Color Lone Sar Quilt
Baby Lone Star Block
Foundation Lone Star
Bonus Lesson: Troubleshooting
I have watched about half of the classes so far and actually completed the first project, but instead of making mine into a pillow, I am making it into a wall quilt.
I am using more of my hand dyed fabrics for this project. This is the center star, ready for those inset seams.
So far, so good!
After setting in the final pieces, I trimmed as directed and started to add the borders. I did not like the large gap between the star points and the border, so I removed the border and cut the block down to a smaller size and re-attached the borders.
Now to quilt it.
I am using more hand dyed fabric for the backing and binding.
Happy 4th Podcastiversary to Sandy! Thanks for the class!
