This is a class for beginners or anyone who wants to get started with free motionFree Machine Quilt quilting. Free motion quilting is where we drop the feed dogs on our sewing machine so that we are in control of the stitch direction and length. With free motion quilting you can stitch in any direction and make lots of different patterns and it is a great way to add texture and interest to your quilting. At this class Esther will show you some simple patterns to get you started and cover the basic techniques of free motion work as well as lots of troubleshooting tips. This is a great way to get started and build your confidence with free motion quilting.

Foundation piecing consists of sewing fabrics onto a foundation fabric such as calico, Vilene or even paper. The design is drawn on to the foundation and you then stitch exactly on the drawn lines using the stitch and flip technique to fill in your design with fabric and it’s a very accurate way to complete complicated designs. This class is an introduction to foundation piecing for students who are new to the technique. Machine sewn.
