We begin by drawing them out on paper and make lots of mistakes there-then we will begin to play on fabric samples with confidence.

This class is geared for the absolute beginner but quilters with a little experience will also benefit from the information on tension, needles, thread & batting.”

Most motifs will be free hand quilted & a few will use marked reference points. We begin drawing them out on paper and make lots of mistakes there-then we will begin to play on fabric samples with confidence. I want you to bring some fun new threads to play with too.
