What's On The Bookshelf Wednesday - We All Love Freebies!

Hi, all!

We all look to our books for new patterns, or to learn new things, right?  I know I do!  But there are so many other resources available to us beyond books these days, and today I want to share one of my favorite places to go for free patterns and great free classes - Craftsy!

I conducted a search of free quilting patterns, looking for fun things to make for Christmas.  Here's just a few of the things I found...

A sweet Christmas table runner ...

Super simple Christmas bell ornaments ...

A no-sew quilted Christmas tree ...

And an adorable paper-pieced trio Christmas tree quilt!

And here are a few great free quilting classes...

I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to learn how to make pixel quilts!

And this is one of my favorite classes - bring some life and style to your quilts with creative quilt backs!

And maybe you like to look at quilt blogs, but haven't taken the plunge into quilting yourself.  This is a great free class that will help you learn the basics easily!

And while free is always good, sometimes you want to take a longer, more in-depth class taught by one of Craftsy's great instructors, such as...

Christina Cameli's great class on free motion quilting...

Or a great class that can help you get a jump on Christmas with Tammy Silver's quick quilted gifts!

Have you always wanted to learn how to design your own quilts?  Take a class with a fabulous quilt designer, Weeks Ringle!

And guess what? Craftsy is really thankful for you, and they want to show you just how much!  For 24 hours only, shop their most popular online classes for just $14.99.  Check them out!  Don't miss this great opportunity!!


Next week, we'll be back with a review of a great book!  Until then, have you looked at your bookshelf lately?
