First, it's called:
Creative Quilting with Rulers
More Techniques and Motifs
Yes, that's a mouthful but the powers that be at Craftsy get to pick the name and I guess Quilting with Rulers 2 isn't as pleasing to their professional marketing peeps.
I am so excited to have made this class for you! First of all is the awesomeness of being able to do it with Craftsy, so the video quality is awesome and my editor and producer make sure that I stay on track and present the information in a coherent fashion. Plus you can watch it whenever you want and how you want, whether that's in your PJ's late at night or when you're in a hurry and you speed me up to 1.5 or even 2x speed. (I will sound like a chipmunk, but that's OK.) At regular speed I am my usual mellow, encouraging self and I take the time needed to fully explain any tricky bits.

The class is a follow up to the first one, Quilting with Rulers on a Home Machine (that's a 50% off link) so if you're completely unfamiliar with using rulers and a free motion ruler foot on your machine, you'll likely want to take the first class before this one. If you've already played around with rulers to guide your free motion quilting for really straight lines and smooth curves, you will find this class really helpful.
I finished up my ruler work sampler for the backdrop of the class too. They redid the studio I was in so I felt a little lost without the old gray background and Craftsy props.
I don't get to see the actual finished edition of my class for a few more days, but I feel really good about it. It is cram-packed with designs and tips, plus I used several different quilt projects in the class to stitch on, so you get to see how to manage your rulers on actual quilts instead of the plain samples I used for the first class.
I've got some exciting events coming up for you as the class launches.
First is a giveaway! Use this special link right now to enter a giveaway hosted by Craftsy. They'll draw the winner the night before the class goes live (currently, scheduled for April 25.). I'll have that name for you on launch day.
I'll be setting up my own giveaway for the class later this week for another chance to win a code to get the class for free. That name will also be announced on launch day.
I'm also going to be posting a special discount link here for the new class! Yes! While it's still brand new, you can get it at a discount right here. I can guarantee it'll be a while before you can get the class cheaper through one of Craftsy's sales.
I'll also be running a sale on rulers and all other products at Amy's Quilting Adventures in conjunction with the class launch. Not entirely sure how I'll be setting this up at this point so keep your eyes peeled for my newsletter (long overdue neglected thing that it is), info on my Facebook page, and of course, here for more information coming soon.
I've got another special project in the works, so I don't want to over-commit myself, but I'm also hoping to share a tutorial or pattern or two for the projects I've used in the class. Some of that will have to wait until I get those projects back from Craftsy, but I'll know more about my special project by then so you'll get news on one or the other.
