Learn the basics of free motion machine quilting on a domestic sewing machine. You will learn how to prepare your quilt and how to choose the right needle and thread for your project. Bring your sewing machine to class and work on small practice pieces and try out different machine quilting methods and designs.
Lynn’s needle turn applique technique makes it easy to achieve perfect applique circles and smooth curves. Points and corners are not a problem. Choose one of Lynn’s Fleur-de-lis patterns, designed to teach you all of the skills needed to applique any other shape or design your own. You will learn the techniques needed to master applique on inside curves, outside curves, inside corners, and outside corners. The applique piece can later be made into a pillow top or small wall hanging, or used as the center of a medallion quilt.
Pressing Matters class - 9-12
Learn the tricks for a flat finish to your quilt. Lynn will show you how to get perfectly matched seams and avoid the “volcano” that can happen when many points come together at the same place. You will learn the secret to getting seam allowances to twirl and lie flat. Taking a little extra time for thoughtful pressing will yield a better looking quilt.
A flatter quilt is easier to quilt. Even if you don’t do your own quilting, your longarmer will thank you!
