Prepping your quilt top properly, choosing and marking designs on your quilt, and selecting batting and backings will all be covered in this class.

• Tackling threads, needles and tension

DAY 1 (2:00 pm – 4:00 pm MST): Free Motion Quilting, You Can Do It!

Ready to tackle free-motion quilting? It’s as easy as starting with a few simple shapes! By beginning with drawing, you can develop an inventory of free motion designs that you can stitch out continuously. Fun fills, creative borders and easy blocks will all be demonstrated. Quilting out beautiful designs using free motion techniques will take your skills to the next level.

Topics Include:

• Drawing basic free-motion designs in a continuous line
• Scaling fills for backgrounds
• Creating your own edge-to-edge designs
• How to fill borders evenly
