The goal: to become confident about choosing and executing quilting motifs which enhance the piecing on a quilt. Sometimes background fillers are the best answer, since they can elevate a quilt, giving it that little extra. Explore how to select, draw and stitch many background fillers, some based on a grid and others which are more appropriate for the modern quilt style. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
