Beginner CQ course - Kathy Shaw

Recently I took Beginner Crazy Quilt class offered by Kathy Shaw. I have very little experience with CQ.

 She had split the beginner course into 10 lessons.  Each of these lessons had one or two assignments to be completed.  The course text included lessons on  -  Hoops & Q-Snaps, How to achieve Balance, Flip and Sew block piecing, Making simple CQ templates, Various Seam treatments, Silk Ribbon embroidery Basic Stitch guide, SRE Iris,SRE Woven Rose, Small SRE seam flowers, Fly Stitch SRE Roses, Fly Stitch SRE Rose Vines, Lace motif attachments and Surface Beading techniques.

It was fun and joy  to see how just a  few scraps of cloth come alive depicting a beautiful garden with various elements - Seam Treatments, Silk ribbon embroidery, Lace Motifs and Beading.

The course was well written from a beginner's perspective, very thorough and detailed with step by step photos and other eye candy photos. 

Thank you Kathy for your generosity in offering this Free course.  I am awaiting for your announcement on the Intermediate course around January 2015.

Here is my completed Beginner CQ block.


Happy Day!!!
