1. Liberate Yourself From the Ditch

1. Liberate Yourself From the Ditch

Meet Helen Godden and start class by understanding why free-motion quilting may have challenged you in the past. Get comfortable with 360 degrees of sewing, and learn how to properly mark your quilt for guidance, not restriction. Warm up with a few simple grid-based motifs including cathedral windows and jigsaw puzzles.

2. Taming Your Stitches

2. Taming Your Stitches

Learn how to gain control of your stitches and achieve a consistent stitch length. Find out how to create smooth corners and sharp points when you mean to! Helen shares some fun new motifs including kangaroos, spirit dancers and more.

3. Consistency & Crossing Over

3. Consistency & Crossing Over

Create basic curves and circles with consistency, not perfection. You'll practice stippling and discover several more forgiving fillers along the way. See how to travel and avoid getting stuck in a corner as you apply your fillers to your quilt top.
