E116-19 Free-Motion Mastery in a Month: A Block a Day to Machine Quilting Success
E116-19 Free-Motion Mastery in a Month: A Block a Day to Machine Quilting Success
With RaNae Merrill
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time

$ 85.00
Kit Fee: $38.00
DoubleTree Hotel / Center of New Hampshire
Level: Everyone  
Type of Class: Hands On Machine Quilting Home Machines

Master the fundamentals of free motion quilting in 30 days -- one block and one day at a time. Want to learn to do free-motion quilting but don’t know where to start? Afraid you’ll ruin that beautiful top you spent weeks piecing? This is the class for you! We'll set up and begin a block-a-day quilt that you can finish in one month (but no guilt if you take longer!). If you mess up a block, no worries - it’s just one block, not a whole quilt. Just do another one! This class is based on my book Free-Motion Mastery in a Month: A Block a Day to Machine Quilting Success. In class we’ll introduce all the techniques and skills you’ll practice in the 30-day program, while making the first three blocks. Finish them into the project shown above, or use them in a larger quilt. Learn how to: - Pre-train your hands anytime, anywhere, before you sit down at the sewing machine. - Set up your machine for free-motion quilting - Move your hands, your body and the quilt for relaxed, efficient quilting - Quilt the fundamental shapes that are the basis for all quilting patterns - Join pre-quilted blocks to make a quilt of any size The class is taught on domestic sewing machines, but the principles and exercises work equally well on a long-arm. The workbook includes instructions for domestic machines, as well as both sit-down and frame-mounted long-arm machines.

Sewing machines provided for your use in class.

$ 65.00
Kit Fee: $18.00
DoubleTree Hotel / Center of New Hampshire
Level: Everyone  
Type of Class: Quilt Piecing

Make a Baravelle spiral quilt that all your friends will say is simply amazing! Learn to draw, color and foundation-piece a Baravelle spiral. You'll also learn how to select fabrics by color, value and pattern and pick up techniques for foundation piecing that make it easier than ever. Baravelle spirals look complicated, but they're actually easy to sew -- and there are NO curved seams! You'll have time in class to complete up to three blocks to get your quilt started. (And in case you only want to finish one block, there's a hot pad pattern for avoiding another UFO!).

Sewing machines provided for your use in class.
