  1. If I sign up for this class, how long do I have before it expires? Lessons on Craftsy lasts forever. How soon do I have to take it ?

    • Hi Jan, the classes don’t expire so you can watch them as many times as you’d like. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you!

    • It’s been great fun watching your quilt-along. I rlelay wanted to make one too, but I had better just watch for now. My current quilt is taking all my time. Then there’s another planned for after that… Maybe there’s room after that one. :) They’re all so beautiful.

  2. Where is the link to the Island Campfires pattern? Where can I find the paper pattern for the diamond that Jodie string pieced and turned into a big star? Are there any written instructions for the techniques and patterns that Jodie used or will I just need to watch the video several times and take notes on the techniques? Thanks so much for your help.

  3. Classes are great because you always learn something. You see construction steps I through someone else’s eyes and that gives you ideas or a new way to save time or steps. I love it!

  4. At the end of the video, Jodie commented on the “free patterns” for the projects she did. Where do I find these “free patterns?”
    I am really interested in making the two stars that she demonstrated at the very ending of the show. Thanks for your help.
