Melissa Marginet is an avid quilter whose passion is to teach and inspire other quilters. She is known for quilting with a walking foot and travels Canada to teach her techniques and empower quilters to quilt their own quilts on their home sewing machines. She has published two books, “Walking Foot Quilting Designs” and “Edge-to-Edge Walking Foot Quilting Designs” as well as several quilt patterns. Melissa was juried into the 2020 NJS with a quilt featuring the technique from her second book. You can visit her website melissamarginet.ca to find out more about her and see her work.
Custom Edge to Edge Walking Foot Quilting Class (6 hours)
Melissa developed this technique because of her dislike for burying threads. By quilting from edge to edge you will not have to bury any threads (unless your bobbin runs out or your thread breaks). But just because you are quilting from edge to edge, doesn’t mean you are limited to a boring quilt design or following the same pattern throughout the quilt. Join Melissa in this class where you will be quilting a simple pixel quilt by using her Custom Edge to Edge Walking Foot Quilting technique.
You will be required to make the quilt top prior to class. Instructions are available for download at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Plv1R75e1dTM3K5KJvE4OPjfpp6gKJzt/view?usp=sharing
