Free Motion Quilted Radiance

In this class, we start with a panel and add free motion quilting to make it POP!  You'll become acquainted with free motion quilting; how the speed of your hands compared to the speed of your needle determines the length of your stitches; thread changes; determining where to quilt.

You are ready for this class if you can answer "yes" to ALL of the following questions: 
1. Have you already made one or more quilts? 
2. Do you know how to layer and pin baste a quilt?
3. Do you have a free motion (or darning) foot and know how to install it on your machine? 
4. Do you know how to adjust the tension on your machine?

Prepare the Panel: Cut 8 inches off the top and bottom of the Radience panel, centering the flower. 
Cut a  (1 1/2" x 24") strip from each of the removed sections, and stitch these to the sides of the flower section, where the flower is close to the edge of the fabric.

Layer the backing/batting/top and baste the layers together. You can use curved basting pins, or you can thread baste it.
