Day 1: Fearless Free Motion Quilting, An Introduction to Free Motion Quilting

If you would like to learn to free motion quilt in a supportive and fun atmosphere, then join me and learn how to begin quilting your own projects at home with your home machine.

Free motion quilting allows you to work directly on your own projects with little or no marking and no stencils.  We will begin working on paper and make lots of mistakes there-then we will begin to play on fabric samples with confidence.  This is not as hard as you think!

Take a look at the sample-we will work on all of these motifs in class.  Free motion quilting can be so fun and liberating-imagine being able to quilt your own quilts!

Day 2: Fearless Fills and Frills

You will make your starter sample on Day 1 and then add fill and frills to that piece on Day 2.
