Workshop: Free Motion Favorites
Length: 6 hours
Level: All
Embrace perfectly imperfect quilting! That means little to no marking, and a whole lot of
gorgeous texture. Ease into free-motion quilting with asymmetrical textures that are fast
and fun to quilt. We’ll explore a wide range of motifs that will look good on any quilt from
modern to traditional. You’ll leave class armed with the confidence that yes, you can quilt
your own quilts. Students should be comfortable with a sewing machine and will practice on
their own pre-basted fabric and batting samples.
Note: please be sure you know how to use your sewing machine and switch out your feet.
Unfortunately, we won’t have time in class to trouble shoot your machine.
