Class Description - This class will focus on increasing your quilting design options through a series of lessons. I will demonstrate for you how to make circles, spirals, feathers, teacups, curve crosshatching, mums and ruler work. We will practice designs on paper and then make samples of these designs in class. We will also learn the technique of color and shadow trapunto and make a small quilt in class. This class will open your eyes to many new possibilities for you to quilt on your domestic machine. We will have a discussion on how to quilt your unfinished quilt tops, time permitting. Bring and unfinished quilt top if you are able for a short discussion at the end of class on how to quilt it. This class will aid you in making your quilts your own.
