Steps to Successful Free Motion Quilting
When: Friday April 21, 2017
Location: Elk Grove Village Library, 9:00am – 4:30pm
Discover the magic of free motion quilting. After drawing our patterns on paper we’ll put the feed dogs down and begin stitching on pre-made quilt sandwiches in a relaxed, no criticism allowed setting. Try lots of different designs to find your personal favorites. This class is designed to give the beginning or hesitant machine quilter a confidence boost, ready to return home and practice. As seen on my DVD Modern Machine Quilting: Free Motion
