I noticed another FREE class on Craftsy this morning. It is on making quilt backs. The instructor is Elizabeth Hartman. She does lots of 'modern' quilts, but it looks like the class is going to have information that is applicable to any style of quilting.
Best of all the price is certainly right!
the price is right and this is a great class for beginners - not sure what they could teach me at this point in my quilty career...lol but I'll look at it anyway! I guess this dog can always be taught new tricks!
Max, thanks for sharing! Great class on quilt backs!
You're correct that 'newbies' or 'beginners' will probably get the most from this class. I was glad to learn that I hadn't been 'doing it wrong' when making some of my backs. That is a comfort to know!
I know someone was asking recently about how to deal with a piece of fabric that was too narrow to use for a backing...how to piece it to make it big enough. This would have been a good class for them to review.
I was also surprised to get an email from Craftsy letting me take a discount on Elizabeth's other new class on Modern Quilting because I had signed up for the free one on quilt backs. Cool deal!
I just finished the class yesterday. It was very well done, especially for one of the free ones. Some of the information in the early lessons were simply basic stuff for the beginners out there, but some of it was stuff I had never thought of myself. I've been quilting on and off for 30 years so I'm not a beginner. But I also have not been quilting steadily during that time, so I'm no expert.
Don't be surprised at the offer of a discount from Craftsy. Once you are on their mailing lists as a student, you will get regular offers on several classes you might also like to take. I literally have only paid full price for one of the classes, and I've registered for a bunch. I like how the platform works.

I watched part of it last night and I thought it was really a good one. I've always had trouble getting the back centered if it was pieced. I never thoughtof rolling up the batting and the top to line it up. And the price is right.:)
She had some great tips. The one about putting the quilt on the batting and then laying them out on the backing together was one of the good ones.
