Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quilting Big Projects I wanted to take the time to comment on this course because it helped me take my quilting to a higher level. i have been quilting for many years and have struggled with quilting large quilts which is a problem for me because most of my quilts end up being queen sized or larger. Ms. Petersen offered so many helpful ideas that immediately improved my quilting. Her teaching style was very thorough and easy to understand. You could tell she had been doing this for many years. I would buy any other quilting course that she was teaching.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tips For All Quilters I learned a few new ways to complete my quilts. I don't consider myself an advanced quilter so am always open to learning various new techniques. This DVD is interesting as well as educational and informative.
