Details

Do you own a walking foot but all you’ve ever used it for is “stitch in
the ditch” or attaching a binding? Is “free motion” quilting just not
your thing? Then this class is for you! Join me to learn the many ways you
can quilt with your walking foot, whether on modern or traditional projects.
Geared to the quilter who already has basic knowledge of machine quilting,
this class will further explore all the many applications of the walking
foot. After a quick review of the
walking foot and how it works, machine setup and preparing the quilt, we
will move on to explore linear designs, grids, matchstick quilting, twin
needle work, radiating designs, quilting curves and circles, and echo
quilting, as well as using decorative stitches for quilting. You will learn
to use your quilting guide, and several other methods of evenly spacing
quilting lines without marking. (Who likes marking anyway?) Students will
receive detailed notes, many tips and stitching time in class to create
samples. Join me for a fun-filled day “walking your way” to new quilting
techniques!

Students should Bring

Basic class supplies will include:
* sewing machine with foot pedal, all cords, an extension cord, power bar
and machine manual.
* walking foot or built in dual feed, and quilting guide(s)
* several machine quilting needles, size 75. I recommend Schmetz needles. As
well a twin needle, suggested size 2.5/80

thread.

* five sandwiches of plain cotton fabric, low loft cotton batting, and
cotton backing, roughly 12" square
**A complete detailed Supply List will be sent upon registration.
Teacher Materials: There is no "kit" supplied for this class as it is a
skills class. Each student will receive detailed notes and ample
help/attention in class. I bring many completed quilts to demonstrate and
inspire. I always have extra needles, thread, etc. on hand in case they are
needed.
