Ready to tackle free-motion quilting? It’s as easy as starting with a few simple shapes! By beginning with drawing, you can develop an inventory of free motion designs that you can stitch out continuously. Fun fills, creative borders and easy blocks will all be demonstrated. Quilting out beautiful designs using free motion techniques will take your skills to the next level.
- Drawing basic free-motion designs in a continuous line
- Scaling fills for backgrounds
- Creating your own edge-to-edge designs
- How to fill borders evenly
- Micro quilting and using different feet
You can either come in to the store and watch the lesson on our big screen, or you can follow along at home! A link for the class will be emailed out a few days in advance for you to sign in to the class.
