ABCs of Free Motion Quilting

Learn the basics of free motion quilting in a simplified easy to understand method. This class is a starting point for quilters that have tried free motion quilting and gave up in frustration. Students will need to have a machine capable of free motion quilting with the correct feet for the job; YOU will also need to have a good knowledge of how to use your machine especially the free motion setting and how to adjust your tension. This is a two day class, a week apart for 2 hours each time. You will learn the basics in the first class. A little practice homework during the week and the last class we will take the basics we have practiced and turn them into quilt patterns. This is a beginner/intermediate class for students who have attempted free motion quilting on their home machine and have some knowledge of how to work the free motion setting on their machine.

Dresden Snowflake Quilt 52in x 52in Large Wall Hanging This Dresden Snowflake quilt is an original design and there is no pattern (yet!) take this class and be one of the first to make it.

The original quilt was made using silver/white fabrics for the snowflakes and red fabrics for the background but this quilt would be pretty in many color combinations.

This snow globe quilt is made from a whole cloth background fabric, a rectangle fabric panel that we turn into a circle with a little piecing , some fabric covered piping and a whole lot of fusible raw edge applique. It is easier than it looks just a little time consuming cutting out the appliques. There is no written pattern for this quilt. Joan created the quilt and will instruct on how to put it together in the class. The quilt is 34.5" x 43" - great wall hanging or add your own borders to create a holiday throw.
