Grade 9

Beginner Free Motion Quilting

Free motion machine quilting is your opportunity to be creative in showcasing your quilt top. Using a combination of threads and stitches we will make a sampler of various methods as you learn the correct way to set up your machine, prepare your quilt, and get the job done. So, you want to try quilting your own quilt and think you know how? Making a quilt is a journey. Along the way you collect tools and skills to make a quilt top. The next step is to learn to machine quilt to add a layer of texture. What a great freedom to choose your designs: cross-hatching, curves, and straight lines. Practice to gain proficiency. Let us help you get started by guiding you with a small quilt, giving you tips on layering, pinning, spraying and marking, how to set up your machine, which needles, which threads work best, and how to know where to begin.
