You asked for it! How do you quilt your quilt without doing free motion quilting?
This quilting class covers how to prepare your quilt top, including layering and basting with hints for those large quilt tops. We will discuss how to set up your quilting area. We will discuss grid quilting, quilt in the ditch, and other quilting options to consider. Plus you will learn how to quilt cables for your borders using a fool proof method that requires NO marking; yes, this is correct. I have quilted a 90” square quilt using these methods on my regular/domestic home sewing machine. We will discuss when to tackle quilting on your regular sewing machine and when to consider taking your top to be professionally longarm quilted.
Sewing basics and machine knowledge are prerequisites for this class.
