Review: Sandi Blackwell’s Square-agonals® Class on Craftsy

SandiBlackwell SqAgClassIntro Sandi Blackwell, author of Simply Sensational Square-agonals® and Square-agonals® 12 Easy Pieces, released her first Craftsy class this week and we are so excited to share our review of it with you! Keep reading for our notes on the class and two special deals that will save you over $20 on Sandi’s book and class!

If you haven’t ever tried Sandi’s easy, no-math-no-triangles method for creating gorgeous diagonally-set quilts, this is a great way to learn a new technique! Taking her Craftsy class is like having Sandi give you one-on-one lessons in sewing a beautiful, on-point quilt, whether you are a beginner ready to take the next step, or an experienced quilter looking for a fresh, new idea.

Sandi begins the class with a clear description of the Square-agonals® technique, with a ton of detail delivered in her personable style that won’t overwhelm you. She makes it easy and manageable and gives you the confidence to tackle a new technique that is going to involve—gasp!—cutting up your quilt top. As the lessons progress (there are seven in all), Sandi shares some great tips and reminders for organized sewing, careful cutting and perfect pressing. These are awesome ideas whether you are stitching a Square-agonals® project or not.

The class includes three projects: a Charm Square Table Runner, a Medallion Quilt, and a Traditional Basket Quilt. Sandi stitches, cuts and reassembles the first project, the table runner, almost in real time, which really made me feel like this is something I can do and it won’t take me forever to finish (or even worse, become one more UFO lying around my sewing room!). The table runner project uses a single charm pack, so the fabric commitment to try the technique is pretty minimal.
