Welcome Creativebug for this special giveaway for the MQG! We are so thankful for their support and hope you take advantage of this great sponsored post.
Folks, do you know Susan Beal? She says that when she learned how to piece together her first block, it felt like she learned a new superpower.
Which makes her our kind of lady.
She’s a longtime fixture on the modern craft scene, as a contributing editor at Stitch Magazine, the historian for the Modern Quilt Guild, and past president of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild. She’s also the author of six books, including Modern Log Cabin Quilting, Sewing for all Seasons, Bead Simple, Button It Up, and World of Geekcraft.
In her four-week course, Susan puts a fresh spin on the traditional craft of log cabin quilting. Each week, she explores a different block style, from easy, graphic square-within-a-square blocks to minimalist, modern crosses and even improvised quartered wonky blocks. The course is perfectly suited to both seasoned quilters and newbies, with ample hand-holding on core techniques, expert tips on block settings, and lessons on how to play with color and print to make your designs pop. At the end of each class, Susan shares fabulous projects that incorporate what you learned, including baby quilts, bags, pillows and table runners. It includes PDF downloads, weekly live chats with Susan, and videos you can watch again and again as you master each technique.
