ONLINE CLASS 1
BEGINNERS FREE MOTION QUILTING CLASS

“Quilt As Desired”

How often do you find yourself in this position- you have meticulously followed all the instructions to create the perfect top when the last instruction is ‘quilt as desired’, unfortunately you don’t have the skills to do so. This is where I found myself many years ago and felt discouraged and let down in the creative process of the quilting. I decided to take on that challenge of learning to quilt it on.my.own.

I understand the struggles and pitfalls that come with free motion quilting, so I decided to use my 8 years of full-time teaching to develop a system to help others like me to achieve the goal of completing the quilt every step with independence and confidence.

WHAT YOU GET

This on-line class provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the sewing machine, the appropriate feet, needle size, thread weight and other tools required for success. Students will learn 10 design elements. There is an extensive work book that is a great companion to this book.

Students will also receive two free patterns for a quilt and tote with detailed quilting illustrations. Along with the quilt pattern, there are 3 different ways described how students can quilt it using all the design elements taught in the class.

ONLINE CLASS 2
INTERMEDIATE QUILTING CLASS

“Inspired by Nature”

I am often overwhelmed by the beauty of nature that surrounds me, the details of a blooming flower or the majesty of a sunset, this series of classes has been inspired by the beauty of nature. With the foundation that was received in the beginners class, you are ready to build upon your skills. Join me as we study the elements in nature and translate their beauty into our sewing projects.

WHAT YOU GET

This series of classes will cover 9 new design elements with many variations within those designs. Our final class will be focusing on how to mix elements and create your very own designs. The techniques taught will focus less on the technical requirements for free motion quilting such as needles and thread rather on the design elements, breaking them down and producing them for yourself. This class will cover design elements such as pebbles, wood grain, swirls, fiddlehead feathers and hoodoos.

Students will receive a detailed workbook that will help with a further break down of the design.

Students receive a free pattern of the quilt displayed in the class. There is a detailed quilting outline of how to quilt it.

At the end of the class students are engaged in a design challenge. This design challenge encourages students to learn how to make variations of each design element taught. One design element can be transformed into many designs. Also this challenge encourages quilters to combine elements and create their own designs.
