Posts Tagged ‘Free Motion Quilting’

I just made this panel quilt for my good friend, Carol Ann. Klimt is her favorite painter and she loves the painting, “The Kiss”, so when I saw this panel at a quilt shop last year I bought it with her in mind. Her birthday was this past month so I pulled the panel out of my stash along with some fabrics that I liked with it and whipped up this panel quilt. She loved it! ūüôā Panel quilts are a great way to make a fast quilt. We have a class coming up at The Studio on August 30th to teach you what you need to know to design your own panel quilt.

Free motion quilting is a form of quilting that can be done on many domestic sewing machines. The feed dogs are lowered and you can move the fabric in the designs of your choice. If you want to learn this fun method of quilting join us at The Studio for a beginning class. You can move beyond straight line quilting and learn the basics of Free Motion quilting. This will move your work up to the next level. This class will teach the basics to get you started on the road to free motion on Saturday morning, August 27th at 10 am.
Class requirements: Must have some experience sewing on machine. Must bring your machine for this class. Be sure your machine will drop the feed dogs so you can free motion. (Contact Kelly if you aren’t sure.) Fee includes: Hands on instruction and layered “sandwich” for practice. Click here to register. Space is limited to 8 students.
