I'm excited to be able to offer a giveaway for my favourite Craftsy class! Sarah Fielke's class, Big Techniques from Small Scraps is an amazing class, jam packed with lots of different techniques for making quilts using a variety of different materials. My Turning Point Quilt was even based on one of the lessons!

The author of four books, including Hand Quilted With Love, Material Obsession and Quilting: From Little Things, Sarah creates vibrant designs that appeal to both modern and traditional quilters. Her fabric lines emphasize her passions for bright colors and bold design that draws from traditional quilting in a contemporary way. You can watch this video to meet Sarah and learn more about her.

About Big Techniques from Small Scraps:
Playful, colorful, improvisational and just plain fun! That's how Sarah Fielke's fans describe her quilt designs. In Big Techniques from Small Scraps, this Aussie quilter makes six small, scrappy quilts that combine traditional techniques with updated fabrics and a fresh design sensibility. Try something different, like deconstructed piecing, or learn a new skill, like needleturn appliqué. Create Sarah's designs or jump off and do them your own way. It's all good fun!

What You'll Learn:
  • Step-down piecing
  • Appliqué curves and points without templates or pins
  • Hand quilting with perle cotton to add dimension
  • Deconstructed piecing
  • Using the 60-degree ruler and Dresden wedge
Sounds fabulous, right?!
