Quilter's Filling Station : Attend this class and you’ll leave with confidence and quilting motif samples to use in your work at home. We’ll look at and create in free motion 3 ‘types of motifs: ones that stabilize, harmonize, and even ‘MOVE’ your eyes on your quilt tops. You’ll create a sampler piece of stitched motifs of each type and that sampler can serve as your own quick reference library OR you can approach it as a standalone machine quilted art piece. You’ll grow through FREEDOM to fill and learn in the doing!!. Machines are sometimes provided at large venues as will be outlined in venue description/supply list info. Guild venues will require students to bring their machine to class. There will be a small material fee for a Quilting Art handout of sample textures and fillers. This is designed for fairly new to intermediate quilters.) At least some experience with free motion quilting advised. 3 or 6 hrs class as chosen by venue
