Good video for learning the top part of the quilt. A little fast for me being as a 1st timer but thats the beauty of being able to stop and rewind. I only wish there was more instruction about putting it all together and quilting and then binding it but I will figure that out I guess but atleast I learned how to make the top part

Very disappointed, it did not demonstrate how to make and assemble the whole quilt, including the batting, the backing and the binding.

Great class. I love the pattern and really love the fabric choices. I still need more basic instruction to finish it off as I've never made a quilt before. Also, if I want to make one in a King size , is there a pattern for that? Thank you.
