    Default Dot to Dot quilting

    Craftsy is having a sale and Angela Walters Dot to Dot Quilting is on sale for $9.99. Has anyone taken this class? Did you enjoy it? Does she use a domestic machine for the class or a long arm machine?

    I loved this class and that is the perfect price for it. It is not as long as her usual classes and her sewing isn't as perfect as it usually is (this did not bother me at all, it showed me even great quilters aren't perfect all the time) but she gives her students some great ideas to work with. I love her teaching style, too. She does it all on a regular sewing machine, which is what I use, so that was helpful to me as well.

    Some forum members have not liked the class because they paid much more for it and didn't feel they got their money's worth. But for $9.99, you really can't go wrong.

    I say, snatch it up and enjoy!

    I took it and thought it changed my quilting tremendously! Here is the quilting I did after the class:

    I am one of those who was very disappointed in the class. It is a short class and does not show Angela at her best. I bought her free motion book,and I love it. I have watched her youtube videos as well. I love her as a teacher. Her techniques are easy to do. For 9.99 it would probably be ok.

    I took this class and really liked it. It's on both domestic sewing machine and also the long arm. I prefer not to mark a quilt, and found this class useful. Like others have said, for $9.99, you can't go wrong!

    Angie, I never tire of seeing your beautiful quilt! Here's one that I used Angela's technique on.

    I just watched the class. Found the dot to dot theory good etc but agree that she didn't do a very
    good job with her lines. Actually looks like something I would have done
    BUT, the lessons were worth the $9.99 I thought. Wouldn't have wanted to pay more for the class.
    When she showed quilts she had done they were very pretty and the lines were straight.

    I just ordered it too. I have been debating with myself over it for months, but at this price it should be fine. And I can always get my money back.

    I ended up purchasing it. The price *was* too good to pass up. Nor do I mind lines not being perfect. I have never sewed a straight line in my life.

    Hulamoon, I remebered too that it had been discussed before but when I tried searching the forums I couldn't find it. My searching skills were lacking today.

    However, I soothed my despair by going to see The Hobbit.
