Machine Quilting And Strategy with Carolyn Friedlander

June 2 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm | $225

Ready to take your home machine quilting skills to the next level? In this class, we’ll focus on free motion quilting with your home sewing machine. We’ll cover design strategy by discussing how to approach your project and what to put where. We’ll move into the technical stuff by exploring the mechanics behind making those design strategies come to life.

Each student will bring in one quilt top that will be a part of the class discussion. In looking at each student’s actual work from home, all students will gain a varied perspective of strategy and design implementation. We’ll spend time as a group looking at each student’s top and discussing different options for quilting it. Then, we’ll dive in to the technical side and explore the mechanics of how to actually make those things a reality. (Take note that while we will be looking at quilt tops from each student, students will actually quilt on practice quilt sandwiches.)
