Free Motion Quilting Club Saturdays

Come and learn free motion quilting on your own sewing machine! In each monthly class, you'll learn 2-3 free motion designs. Attend as many classes as desired.  Finished blocks created can be made strictly for practicing free motion quilting designs OR you can create a unique appliqued quilt, wall hanging or table runner, depending on the size of the project you wish to create.

After several blocks are completed, a finishing class will be offered.  The finishing class will provide instructions for slashing & reassembling blocks (optional) and for joining blocks using a quilted sashing technique.

Free Motion Quilting Club Supply List
Bring to each class:
Sewing machine, free motion quilting foot, and basic sewing supplies, basting pins, scissors, etc.
Free Motion Quilting WorkBook by Angela Walters
Contrasting color-coordinated cotton threads so your quilting stands out against background and optional applique fabrics.
Quilting Gloves or Betty Bands highly recommended
Fresh 80/12 top stitch or quilting needle
Several pre-wound bobbins
(3) 9" x 9" fabric squares for background 
(3) 9" x 9" fabric squares for backing
(3) 9" x 9" cotton, low-loft batting square

Important Notes for Choosing Your Fabrics:
Background Fabrics may be 1 fabric or an assortment of similar fabrics that are light or medium in value and are quiet & muited with a smaller scale print.  Backing Fabrics may be a variety that coordinate with the background fabrics, or choose just one fabric, or make it scrappy to use up your stash.

For those interested in including a simple contrasting 5"x5" centered appliqued shape (heart, circle, leaf, etc.) on each background block, arrive to class with three sandwich blocks with appliqued shape already satin-stitched through all 3 layers, so you'll be ready for free motion quilting in class.  We recommend using fusible Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 web.  1 yard will do 12 applique shapes.

The optional Applique Fabrics need to contrast with the background fabric(s) and can be an assortment of fabrics in one color family, or a theme, or be of similar value from multiple color families.  Example:  Applique a medium-dark to dark heart shape on a light background.
