Intermediate Free Motion Quilting - An Introduction to Wholecloth Class
Students who have completed our Beginners Free Motion Quilting Class, or who have Free Motion Quilting experience are welcome!
Sew a series of samplers and a wholecloth wall-hanging (75cm x 100cm) in this exciting new two-week class. Wholecloth quilts are sewn from a single piece of fabric (with backing and batting) and the quilting is the hero, adding texture and design to the cloth. The beauty of whole cloth is the play of light and shadow on the surface of the fabric that has been manipulated by stitching hills and valleys. There is a simple elegance to this technique that is very satisfying.
Create samplers and add to your skills with some more advanced additions to your free motion quilting repertoire.
Using various grids and marking techniques, you will understand just how to fill in all the negative space on your quilt. At times you will stitch the grid in using your walking foot and other times you will mark a removable grid, so it looks like magic when your pattern is all the same size and orientation.
Learn additional patterns fit awkward spaces.
Learn to mark and map your original whole cloth design. Using your new free-motion quilting, grid and marking techniques you will create an original artwork which can be used as a wall-hanging.
