Craftsy Block of The Month Tour & Giveaway!

Posted on February 29th, by Amy in Block of the Month, give away. 266 comments

Welcome the Craftsy Block of the Month Tour!  It’s a great program and I’m excited to share it with you!

First, do you know about Craftsy?

Craftsy offers online courses about all of your favorite crafty topics – taught by amazing instructors. Craftsy courses are online, so they are available to you anytime you want for as long as you want – they have no scheduled class times, so you can enjoy them entirely on your own schedule. Each course is taught by an acclaimed instructor and consists of several hours of HD-quality video content… but Craftsy courses are much more than just video! While taking a Craftsy course, you can:

  • Ask your instructor questions, upload photos, and get personalized responses
  • Participate in discussions with your classmates
  • Access supporting course materials – including patterns and helpful tips & tricks
  • Bookmark your favorite moments in the video so that you can easily re-watch them and take notes that you can refer back to anytime


I love the interactive nature of Craftsy, and the a quality of product that they provide.  If you haven’t yet, set up an account and start looking around.  There are a number of classes, and occasionally a free one – like this BOM program with Amy Gibson!  The instructions are great, and you can ask questions of Amy, any time you need help.  And there’s a LOT of people making these blocks!

I took a screen shot of another great feature, you can add notes to the video privately, and jump to that spot in the video time and again, if needed.  Each month Amy will have a 30 minute video, walking quilters through two blocks, then toward the end of the year lots of finishing details, so the quilts get finished!

If you aren’t convinced to join in the fun yet, go watch the intro video on Craftsy!  I happened to meet Amy last fall at the Sewing Summit, and she’s super sweet and a lot of fun, you will enjoy working along side her each month!


Our lovely friends at Fat Quarter Shop have offered a $25 Gift Certificate for one of my readers!

To win :

1 – Leave me a comment – maybe tell me if you have any BOM projects you are currently working on.

2 – Follow me on Craftsy. (I’ll follow you back!)

Leave a comment for each entry, and I will select a winner on Monday, March 5th, 2012.

    I am participating in Amy’s BM @ Two blocks a month only makes me chomp at the bit for more, more, more. I love your site, and will now be a subscriber. So many quilts to make, and so little time. Thanks for hosting Craftsy’s Blog of the Day.

    Amy’s BOM on Craftsy’s website is my first online BOM.I love it! In fact I can’t wait for March and am sorry that February has 29 days this year. What am I going to do with March and it’s 31 days? I just found out about the Blog Tour and I am excited to learn about other online resources. What a great time to be a “sewer”, “sewist”, or may I suggest “sewista” LOL!

I am doing a bom at my lqs using 3 sisters line. I am doing 2 on flickr, the fat quarter stars with Moose on the porch and a sunny embroidery bom. But I have about 5 bom that I finished the blocks and that is all the farther I have gotten. That’s why I’m not signing up for anything right now. Thanks for your inspiring blog.

    Rosemary says:

    I am not a blogger, but have been following Craftsy’s Blog Hop and planning to make the BOM using the great tutorials. I have never done a block of the month before, but I think it’s an excellent way to learn techniques and complete a quilt at the same time. One suggestion I would give would be to make a banner of the month. I have banners in my front window celebrating the season/holiday. Most of them are ‘cheaters’ -only one is a purchased banner because I couldn’t find an appropriate cheater for St. Pat’s Day. I have used “cheaters” because it was expedient at the time. I find this is a way to celebrate the holidays/seasons and not take up valuable storage space as other projects might.

    I am really enjoying Amy’s instructions on Craftsy’s BOM class… I have had “show and tell” at work with my four finished blocks in tow (haha); my 23 yr old twin sons have “offered” their feedback, and I’ve posted pics on Craftsy and Facebook… lol think anyone will be surprised when they find these quilts under the tree at Christmas time? Thanks for hosting the giveaway and being part of the blog tour… (that is also new to me).

    VickiT says:

    I’ve been following along on Craftsy but haven’t had the nerve to cut fabrics yet. (I’ve also had other things going on that stopped me from starting in the beginning) I am hoping to get at least one of the blocks done in the next week once I finish this little quilt along I’m working on right now.

    I did go over to Craftsy and start following you also. Someone had given me the gift of Jenny’s first quilt along from Missouri Star Quilt company because she won and was an experienced quilter and didn’t need that. I loved Jenny’s class and it was very well done. So far the videos from the Block of the Month are awesome and very well explained.

    I already finished the first two blocks of the Craftsy Block of the Month! I also have a fabulous House and Tree Quilt along going on my blog called ‘Home Sweet Home’ inspired by a quilt Aneela Hooey made. FabricFascination’s BOM has been super fun – I ordered a kit from her. AND I’m doing the Blogger’s BOM…yup, I’m slightly obsessed with BOM’s :) Here’s my update from my progress as of last Monday:

    Thanks for hosting a fabulous giveaway!

    Patricia Wurpel says:

    I am currently enjoying the BOM with you on Craftsy. Although the blocks don’t seem to get posted soon enough for me. I am enjoying this so much that I look forward to the next class way sooner than it is ready. A friend suggested that I work on three quilts at the same time to donate to our community quilts project. And the third could be given to her. Thank you so much for offering the free class. I have referred a few ladies in our community to your free class.

    Valerie says:

    Well, I haven’t done any of the Craftsy BOMs yet, but did sign up! I’m in a bee, so does that count as a BOM?? I can’t wait to get to some of Amy’s blocks!

  212. 212
    Kim says:

    Since I started the Craftsy BOM, I have decided to do several at the same time. I am doing a BOM called Red at Night through a wonderful quilt shop in Parker, a Buck a Block through another shop, I am finishing 3 other BOMs purchased a couple of years ago, and I ordered a Christmas quilt BOM through Oxmoor House in 1997. This quilt had freezer templates for all 36 blocks, whether pieced or appliqued. I have just started doing that quilt but using the templates as a measuring guide and using what I’ve learned from Craftsy BOM and the other blocks to do a more traditional way of making the pieced blocks on that Christmas quilt. All in all, I’m doing 9 BOMs. Keeps me busy this year!

  213. 213

    I’m attempting the BOM on Craftsy, so far I’ve watched the classes, but haven’t chosen any fabrics. I’m going shopping this weekend!

    I am participating in Amy’s BOM on Craftsy. I really don’t have a quilt shop close to my home that has offered a reasonably priced BOM project. I have followed along on an on-line mystery BOM. I currently have 7 quilt sandwiches ready to be quilted. They include 3 wall hangings, 1 table topper, 2 lap quilts, and 1 full size quilt. Before I finish any of those, I need to make a baby quilt for a June baby.

    You know, I have so many things started and nothing accomplished. I had such big plans for this year, right down to doing a “day planner”. Oops, it didn’t work out for me! But in light of what has happened in my life the last few weeks, there is about to be a big change in a lot of things. I must take control before I lose control of everything. Read my blog later this week for insight into what has gone on.
