I'm not sure how to even begin to tell you how these two classes shaped my quilting journey!Her teaching style is so encouraging. I watched these classes over and over. One of the major benefits of Craftsy classes is that you have access to them forever. That's a long time! You can watch them as many times as you want, when you want and best of all where you want. Want to watch a particular section over again? Easy peasy. Want to bookmark portions of the class that have just blown your mind? Easy peasy. Craftsy has an excellent class platform and includes the ability to interact with the teacher which is awesome.
I immediately put much of what I learned from Cindy into practice. And my fan girl status of Craftsy and Cindy was ignited. About a year and a half after I took those classes from Cindy, I got the chance to take a class from her live and in person!! Turns out, Cindy is just as sweet in person as she seems in the classes!! What an absolute thrill!! Wholecloth quilts absolutely fascinate me. Big ones, small ones and everything in between! What specifically came out of Cindy's classes? Check this out!

|Do you ever look at something you have made and wonder "Who quilted that?" . . . happens every time I look at this quilt!|
