3 Pins Make the Path by Sarah Bistline

number 3   Domestic Machine Quilting

You can make that finished quilt top completely on your own by machine quilting it yourself on your domestic machine!

The basic goal of the class is to learn techniques to free motion. We will practice simple, but impressive quilt patterns and grids. We will discuss preparation of each machine, the best way to make the quilt "sandwich", setting the proper tension, selection the right thread, the proper needle and looking at the pattern that will enhance the quilt itself.

We will begin with small quilt sandwiches and graduate to a small quilt top.

Rusched Roses by Darlene Young

number 14   Rose of Sharon - Fabric Painting

This stunning project is presented for those who enjoy or want to try fabric painting. Learn how easy it is to paint your own fabric. This is not as messy or time consuming as fabric dying and provides wonderful effects of paint, water, and salt. We will paint the fabric on Friday, then start cutting appliqué pieces Saturday morning.

After you learn to paint your own fabric, learn how to cut up this fabric and make wonderful quilts with my Rose of Sharon pattern. This method is a direct, raw edge, appliqué and quilting at the same time. Size 18" x 20"..

Instructor: Wendy Lewis
Level: Beginner
