Creativebug Log Cabin Quilting with Susan Beal Give-Away

It is Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I have a three month membership to Creativebug to giveaway! You can take any classes you want, as many times as you want for three months! How cool is that! Just leave a comment on this post and tell me about your favorite sewing or quilting class. My favorite class was Susan Beal's Log Cabin Quilting, which I took several years ago when she taught it at PNCA. Now she has a new version of this fab class on Creativebug!
Creativebug's Log Cabin Quilting with Susan Beal is a super fun, four-part on-line class -- the first class goes live on May 6, and new classes premiere every Tuesday all month. After that the class will be available to watch any time with a membership. This is week two and her Log Cabin Baby Quilt class is premiering on Tuesday May 13th.
I can't wait to watch this class! I spent an afternoon helping Susan sew blocks for this quilt and I can't help but feel a little mushy that my hands were involved in getting to stitch this together! I love how she set this off-center and how there are little pops of pink to really make this bright and cheery!
Each class is going to include a live chat at 11am Pacific time with Susan on the Thursday after it premiers. There are lots more details on the class page with the dates, times and supply lists. .
Here is a little trailer for Susan's class. If you watch closely, you just might see me for a quick second over at Modern Domestic with Heather Davidson. I am feeling pretty lucky to have been a part of this fun project. And congrats to Susan on this really fun class! Check out Susan's facebook page and #cbuglogcabin on Instagram for fun posts and announcements. 
P.S. I will ship anywhere, because this giveaway can be emailed! 
P.S.S I read each and every comment but I don't respond until after the drawing - that way I get an accurate count! Good luck everyone!

  3. I am so excited to have a chance to win this. My friend Heather Jones has several classes on CreativeBug, too. I have not had time to watch anything that didn't relate to college for a few years but now I have graduated and the stitching can begin again.

  6. My favourite quilting class was in-person with Elaine Quehl. I learned to make a tree out of scraps. (I have yet to finish the whole quilt, but the tree is beautiful.) I would love to be able to take classes online, on my own time.

  8. I have never taken a quilting class, but want to. My favorite sewing class was making a skirt and inserting an invisible zipper. I learned where and how to add darts and the proper way to cut fabric. I mastered the basics, so I think I'm ready to make a quilt for my baby girl! coralbunnyandlo [at] gmail [dot] com

  28. My favorite class was Crazy Piecing with Katie Pedersen. It was a very rainy day but the space was beautiful and the process was relaxing and fun. And the mimosas the shop owner served didn't hurt either.
    Thanks so much for this giveaway!

  30. Loving the log cabin class. I've been quilting for three years, and I've never made a log cabin quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I took Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple by Camille Roskelley - I just couldn't get up the courage to use any of the pre-cuts that I'd purchased and needed to see someone else demonstrate techniques.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have never taken one, but I would like to take one on hand quilting. sarah@forrussia.org

  43. Sounds like fun. That quilt with the hexagon quilting is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think my favorite class I have taken (only taken online ones) was Amy Gibson's Block of the Month on Craftsy. I learned a lot of differnt techniques and it was explained very well. I like videos better than a more tutorial type. It helps me learn better!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have never taken a sewing class. All I know I owe to my mother and my mother in law. Still a very big beginner. Would love to take some classes.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't know that it was technically a class but watching the paper piecing episode of Fons and Porter was so helpful to me when I was starting out.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I really loved Rachel Hauser's (Stitched in Color) Handstitched class. I drool over her other classes all the time too.

  51. This looks liken fun. I don't have a LQS near me to take classes, so this is the next best thing. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've never thought about taking classes online. I have no idea why I haven't actually. D'oh. I would love to learn more about just the regular basics. No book ever teaches you how to thread your needle properly or what the basting stitches should look like. I bet it would be so much better to actually watch someone do that stuff. :D

  53. I've been doing Sandra Betzina's pants making workshops on Craftsy. She's an excellent instructor!
