Deborah Poole doesn't like to stop and start any more than absolutely necessary when longarm quilting. She has developed a method to quilt patterns continuously. Deborah demonstrates how to quilt several types of pieced blocks, sashing, and a wholecloth block continuously. You'll also see examples of continuous straight-line quilting and learn about different kinds of tools that can be used to obtain straight quilting lines with ease.
New to quilting, Coleen Barnhardt wanted to get good at multiple quilting designs as quickly as possible. When one of her doodle quilts has been fully quilted, the next step is to color it in. Coleen demonstrates how she uses different shades of paint with an extender to blend the colors right on the quilt.
Heidi Stagno has developed a method to create quilted feathers in any direction so that she doesn't have to unload and reload the quilt she's working on from the frame. Heidi shows how she gets the parts of her feathers uniform. You'll learn how to avoid flat feathers or bubbly feathers, how to start feathers in a border to avoid problems later, and more.
