Thread Drawing and Quilting Art-Quilts

In this 1-Day class you will learn and practice or enhance your free motion quilting skills.  First we will warm up by free-motion quilting a number of patterns that can be used for continuous background quilting in art quilts.  You will also learn how to sign your name on your quilt by using the sewing machine as a writing tool.

Then we will make one or more simple drawing on muslin sandwiches from patterns included in Grace’s kit. We will proceed to draw the designs with your sewing machine using thread.  Kit for the class: $10.00 contains patterns for the drawing exercise and various stabilizer for you to try.

This technique requires minimum effort and practice.  You can execute it even if you do not feel comfortable with free motion quilting. We will review and practice free motion and discuss threads used in the process. Along with creating this quilt, this class will definitely improve your free-motion quilting skills, regardless of the level you are at now.  At the end of the class, you will feel very confident of your quilting skills and be ready to attack any quilting challenges you might have in the future.
