Hi everyone, in case you wondered what happened to me last week, I was busy teaching a private beginner quilting lesson, designing and working on two new quilt patterns, helping my daughter on reading week with her thread painting project and teaching a free motion quilting class in Barrie, Ontario! Below is a pic of just about how I felt yesterday!!!
I wanted to talk today about free motion quilting and to encourage those that have never tried it to take a class. My class Saturday at Hummingbird Sewing in Barrie was wonderful and the ladies indicated to me that they were thankful and that they learned a lot. Most indicated at the beginning of the class that they had never tried free motion quilting!
The reason that free motion quilting is an important skill set to have in quilting is as follows:
I realize because I hear that some people are intimidated by free motion quilting, but believe me to get proficient at it all you need are 2 things:
Even if you are not creative this can happen. You will get smoother with your stitching, stitch length and control of your work with instruction and practise.
I am available at your venue if your group or guild believe they need some help in this direction at very reasonable rates, have a look at my teaching page here
Scroll down to #6 on my teaching page (teaching is in the above menue) and you will see some of the samples of my free motion class and the class description. Please feel free to use my contact page for scheduling.
I guarantee, that you will feel less intimidated about free motion quilting and more confident to use this valuable skill after taking my class.
Happy Monday everyone, My wish for all... a wonderful week, some sun and milder temps before we head into a deep freeze again!
