Craftsy Free Block of the Month video tutorials

Today, I am so excited to share with you lovely readers about the new Craftsy Block of the Month, taught by the very delightful, Amy Gibson.
Have you heard of Craftsy?  Craftsy is a new site online with courses in all kinds of craftsy fun – sewing, knitting, quilting, even making hand dipped chocolates!  The classes are taught in video courses that you can access at your own pace and schedule.  Other benefits include being able to ask your instructor questions and get personalized responses and bookmark your favorite moments in the video.  You can even take notes right under the video to refer back to. You can sign up for a free account at Craftsy.com and poke around the site for any classes you might be interested in. Most of the classes have a class fee.
For all you visual learners, this is the place for you.
Today I’d like to share a little bit about the FREE Block of the Month video courses taught by Amy. (I met Amy at the Sewing Summit and she was absolutely lovely. I can think of few people I’d enjoy watching more than Amy.)
Photobucket

Each month Amy will teach how to make two different blocks in a 30 minute video. Each block teaches a very different quilting technique to add to your repertoire.  Towards the end of the year she will teach techniques like adding borders, quilting and binding.  Did I mention it’s all free? There are already over 53,000 people signed up from all over the world for this course. wow.

February Blocks- HTS
You can watch a preview video here, but you need to click Sign-Up to see the full video tutorials, access the message boards, etc.  I think that this is such a brilliant idea.  All of us learn techniques differently and for many a video tutorial is the most effective way to learn. I love that this option is now available and put together so well.

    I&#39;ve watched the first couple of videos, but haven&#39;t made any blocks yet. I love the efficiency of chain piecing and cutting strips, so sampler style doesn&#39;t appeal to me most of the time. However, I may eat my words and join in at some point anyway!

    I signed up for the Craftsy BOM, and I&#39;ve been following along, watching the vids, etc. Although I love the concept and plan to do the quilt, I can&#39;t get into it without seeing what the final quilt is supposed to look like. How can you plan a quilt color scheme without having the final picture in mind so you can coordinate your colors appropriately for the blocks?
