In this workshop, students will learn the two basic methods of finishing quilts on a home sewing machine, straight-line quilting with a walking foot, and free-motion quilting.
The class will cover a wealth of practical information including how to select thread color, how to make a properly-sized quilt back, how to make a stable quilt sandwich, and how to manage the weight of the quilt during quilting. We will also practice a variety of basic quilting designs.
This is an all-day class with an hour break for lunch. In the morning, we’ll cover making quilt sandwiches and straight-line quilting basics and designs. In the afternoon, we’ll cover free-motion quilting basics and designs. The goal of this class is to build confidence and quilting skills that can be applied to the students’ own quilt projects.
