This class is Free. I also enrolled in the 2012 Block of the Month Craftsy Class and am so happy that the 2014 Block of the Month Class is now available. Yea, Craftsy!

Laura Nownes is a nationally recognized quilting instructor and has also written a couple of books. She has a very quiet voice and made me feel like she was talking to me and not at a camera. I started this class at the beginning of last year and followed along month to month. I looked forward to every segment and couldn't wait for the next lesson. This is another sampler quilt with each block using a different technique. The techniques taught in this class seemed a little more challenging than the 2012 class and I learned a lot. One class covers hand applique, which I enjoyed. The blocks are all different sizes, so when it came to sewing them together there was a little more involved than just sewing the blocks in rows and sewing the rows together. I haven't quilted mine yet, but I did complete the quilt top.

Craftsy is having a BOM for 2014, it isn't complete yet. I found that info on their Facebook page.

Your quilt top is lovely and looks just like the teachers... Did you purchase the kit from the class...if not you matched it perfectly...

Thank you very much! No, this is a different fabric line -- Benartex Bold and Beautiful. I had this fabric in my stash for a quilt that I never got around to making.

As of today, I was able to find it. Do a search for 2014 Block of the month. It's different from the previous two BOM's.

No, you should be able to find Nov. and Dec. They're on finishing the quilt and sewing the binding.

You don't have to buy the fabric kit and can use your own fabric if you want to. They offered a fabric kit for the 2012 and 2013 classes too.
