What people are saying

It’s finished! Thank you so much Helen. This was my first ever free motion quilting project and I’m so pleased how it turned out. Your quilt along was just the thing to launch into FMQ head first and although it was scary at first, it’s helped me to build skills so quickly and given me the confidence to go on FMQing.

Flying into colours online course was perfect. I live in a small community with 6 kids at home so as you can imagine, I have a busy life and not really the opportunity at this point to head off to a weekend craft retreats.

My 5yr old daughter and myself sat at the computer watching the lessons, sharing an ear piece each of the headphones (good quality time)
I found the course very informative ..easy to understand step by step, clear instructions and was great watching as others attempted their own little masterpiece
The photo gallery was great ..every time I hit a creative block I could look over it and get ideas and inspiration.

The course was explained clear and simple enough that little miss 5 sat with me and instructed me as to what we do next.
Thank you Helen for sharing your talents in a format that people like myself can access and achieve fantastic results from the comfort of our homes and busy lifestyle.


Thanks, Helen! And a Huge THANK YOU for everything that you are doing for us! 12 months ago I had done very minimal free motion quilting, some stippling and loopy lines on only a couple of projects. I discovered your Escape the Ditch class on Craftsy and haven’t looked back.

Since then I’ve completed Quirky Collections BOM, The Year of the Rooster, Christmas Advent wall hanging, a handful of my own projects and now these Pink projects. Wow, what an enjoyable year I’ve had!

With each project I do, my ability improves and my confidence increases (there are still plenty of “oops! moments”, but that’s OK). I’m really looking forward to what you have in store for us this year. Which reminds me, I must go and sign up for Feathered Friends BOM…I look forward to my monthly dose of new instructions and videos. So THANK YOU, Helen Godden! What you are doing, and the format that you are delivering it, is working and very much appreciated.
