Meet quilting instructor Debby Brown as you dive into a fun and rewarding introduction to free-motion quilting. Debby starts the class with an explanation of how to set up your machine and control tension, as well as surprisingly easy methods to create temporary guidelines.
Start free-motion quilting with the letter I, which can be more challenging than it looks! Practice steadying your hand as you draw and stitch straight, even lines. Then add more complexity as you try Debby's energetic designs, including zigzags, stars, bricks and many more!
Trade in straight lines for continuous curves as you tackle O shapes. Debby helps you navigate circle and oval shapes, meandering patterns and echoed loops. Next, she teaches you how to start and stop your stitches for dense designs like pebbles, or whimsical patterns like paw prints or footprints.
