If you’re ready to move to the next level in free-motion quilting, this is the perfect time to do so! Learn to draw and stitch easy feathers of various shapes, and size them to fit in different shapes — just like you would have to do in a quilt, all using minimal marking. Practice your free-motion stitching in class and discuss several ways to transfer designs onto the quilt top, batting and thread choices, as well as other important points for successful free-motion quilting. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
