Learn the techniques and tips to develop your free-motion machine quilting skills!

If you cringe when handing over your precious quilts to someone else to finish, then it's time to learn how to finish them yourself using your domestic sewing machine. Machine-quilting expert Wendy Sheppard remembers what it's like to learn how to machine quilt—the fear and frustration, but more importantly, the satisfaction at learning valuable machine-quilting skills. Her experience and expertise will guide you and give you the confidence to beautifully quilt your projects.
In this quilting class, you will:
  • Discover which threads, needles, batting and notions work best with machine quilting
  • Learn how to securely start and stop stitching
  • Discover how to imprint quilt motifs in your brain before taking them to the sewing machine
  • Practice and learn straight-line stitching close together and far apart parallel lines, corners and crosshatching
  • Learn free-motion quilting techniques stippling, swirly vines, interchanging vine, allover swirls, jester's hat, single and double echoing, and pebbles.
Practice each quilting technique as you create a 24" x 24" tone-on-tone sampler wall hanging included in the class.

Learning these techniques and quilting motifs will greatly enhance and broaden your ability to finish your quilts, allowing you to add more texture, depth and beauty to your quilted creations.

I expected more than what was given in the lesson. I am happy I did not pay full price.

I love the class. It is a perfect way to learn. I was lucky enough to take a live class with Wendy and the online class is like having her right there in the room with me. I am excited to get the second class and am so hopeful that it will include stitching feathers. When I think of the feathers on the quilts Wendy has done I can see a whole class devoted to sewing feathers. To think Wendy has only been sewing for about ten years, this is so exciting and something to work toward.

I have watched the entire class without touching fabric or machine. I'm ready to tackle the straight line parts very confident about that! Turning off the feed dogs scares, the bejeebers out of me. I see a lot of practice in my future. They say practice makes perfect, and I am determined to succeed at this. I may wear this out re-watching it, but I find it very helpful.

I've only just started the class but so far I find it so educational! Wendy is a very good instructor and she teaches like a pro. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn free motion quilting or you need to brush up on your techniques.

Maybe free motion quilting isn't my thing. It looks too difficult, I need stencils or templates.
