Find out how to achieve a consistent stitch length and troubleshoot any issues. Plus, Elizabeth will guide you through a variety of non-linear and linear designs such as stippling, woodgrain, wishbone, modified clamshell and much more! You'll get plenty of free-motion practice while working on the three patterns included with the class: two pillows and a baby quilt or wall hanging.
