Basic Machine Quilting: Freemotion Quilting on the Domestic Sewing Machine
Time & Location
About the Event
Practice improves skill and confidence. Quilting with the machine not only is fast but can often enhance the overall look of the quilt. However, many quilt makers are hesitant to try it or believe it is not “authentic” or takes too much practice to be good... This class is primarily for the beginner but can be useful to the quilter who has tried but may not be completely satisfied with the results. The class is comprised of the following: (1) pep talk that it is OK to DO IT. (2) A discussion and description of the tools and equipment necessary and useful to good machine quilting. (3) An exercise in using the even-feed sewing machine foot. (4) Introduction to the four primary motifs of continuous line designs and last but not least (5) Practice, practice and more practice. During the class students will practice straight line and continuous line motifs on a 22” square of fabric. And last, will practice on fabric which has been preprinted with a continuous line feather design. A kit will be provided at a cost of $20.00 which includes the fabric and batting to be used in the exercises.
Sewing Machines, Irons, Rotary cutters and mats will be provided.
