Not everyone can afford a longarm quilter or wants to have someone else quilt their quilt, and not everyone enjoys free motion quilting. As a participant in this class, you will make samples of different quilting ideas that can be executed on the home sewing machine with a walking foot. You will create samples of walking foot designs on small quilt sandwiches to help you understand what makes each design successful. We will also look at variations of the designs you stitch out. These samples will be a great reference for you when deciding how to quilt your next quilt. This class includes information on quilting all sizes of quilts on the home sewing machine. – ALL LEVELS
