Quilt Technique: Free Motion Quilting

1 x 3hr Session


Class Length: Classes are 3 hours.
Number in Class: 6 
Entry Level: You will need to have completed one of our ‘Machine Basics’ courses, or have similar experience with a sewing machine.  This means you must be able to thread the machine on your own, wind a bobbin, and go forwards and backwards with straight stitch. Attending the Backstitch Quilt Basics: Finish Your Quilt: Baste, Quilt & Bind  class would be a useful introduction, but not essential.
Materials: Not included. Please see materials list below.
Tutor: Jemma Dell

Free motion quilting is a brilliant way to finish your quilt. If you have never been brave enough to try it, or are unsure where to start, this is the class for you. It is a great way to use your sewing machine creatively. It is not difficult, you don’t even need to be ‘artistic’ to get some great results!

In this class, we will cover a range of free motion designs, including stippling, loops, stars and hearts. We will also try echo quilting, defining negative space and several other ideas depending on time and the interests of people attending the class.

Materials Needed:
You will need to bring a sketchbook or a few sheets of paper and a pencil. You will also need several ‘quilt sandwiches’ (two layers of cotton fabric with a cotton or polycotton batting between) on which to practise. You will need a minimum of 4 of these, with a minimum size of 10x10 inches. They could be made from a couple of fat quarters or from scraps of fabric. 

Students are welcome to either bring their own machines (you will also need a darning foot) or you can use the Backstitch machines for free.

All our classes are non-refundable and non-transferable.  We urge you to carefully check your diary prior to booking to ensure that you can attend.  We also need two students enrolled on the class otherwise it is subject to cancellation.  By purchasing this class you are agreeing to our full class policy.
