I just signed up for the class today. Laura Nownes teaches it. In addition to a teacher, she is an author.

I did watch some of the first lesson. However, when she got to the actual cutting and sewing of the block for January, I was lost. I guess that I am too much of a "beginner". I did look at the materials list and instructions. But I was still not too clear on what's going on.

Anybody else going to join the class?

I signed up. I'll watch the video and report back later.

What part of the cutting was confusing?

I signed up as well and I'm finishing up the last Craftsy BOM quilt with Amy Gibson. I watched the new intro video briefly last night and I didn't really like the look of the finished quilt. I might play along though.

Not in love with the finished quilt, either; but, hoping for new- to- me techniques.

I can see there will be a lot of good techniques to learn but I think I'll pass. The finished quilt is really not to my taste.

I just enrolled. It's free, so how can you lose? I just discovered Amy Gibson's BOM class a few weeks ago and have just two more blocks to make before I'm finished. I've learned so much from Amy's class and hope to learn more new techniques in 2013.

I have signed up for this too. I like free. I also signed up for Amy's class last year, but got only two blocks done, so I will be making two quilts this year. I'll have to spend less time on the computer.

I signed up. Love to see different ways of doing things. I tried to peek ahead, but since it's only one month at a time it will go slow. But it's free. I have paid for lots of their classes, most are good...especially since I just had my internet speed upped.

I just got an email for this class today!

I will pass too, the only think that interests me is the partial seams, but I think I can figure them out if I had to.

I wouldn't take it tough to make a quilt, but just to learn the techniques.

I wonder if they will have another class on how to quilt it. I wasn't really interested in the first BOM until I saw Leah Day's class.

I signed up, as I like many of the blocks in the finished quilt, but I really don't like the quilt. It doesn't seem cohesive at all, just a bunch of random stuff thrown together.
