Incredible free-motion quilting doesn't have to take tons of time and effort. Join festival-favorite instructor Debby Brown and learn how combining simple shapes can lead to fabulous FMQ without the fuss. It's a faster approach to all-over designs and more!
Meet Debby Brown and begin class by brushing-up on the theory behind the techniques, so you can better understand how the class builds on the shapes used. Then tackle a simple stencil-making method using paper and pounce powder, and move on to some fun quilting designs. Debby shows you how quilting squares and continuous curves can lead to some intriguing new free-motion favorites.
Clamshells look intricate, but they're actually pretty easy! Debby shows you how to work them in a square boundary and moves on to a different method of stitching for embellished clamshell designs. You'll also learn how chicken wire quilting (sometimes called mattress-pad quilting) can help you quickly and attractively quilt a pieced top.
Get a different look from your angular shapes by adding purely rounded quilting motifs. Shells are great for filling a space evenly, while alternating them can create visual interest through contrast. You can even improvise as you quilt, skipping the stenciling to create truly unexpected designs!
