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 think this is an excellent class especially for those new to FMQ. I've been trying to improve my skills at FMQ for a while now. I'm a step beyond beginner level but, life kept interfering and prevented me from frequent practice. Having zero artistic/drawing ability, consistent practice is a must for me. I long for the day I can fairly easily visualize the design I'm working on, stitch it so it actually looks like what I'm attempting and that I can "see" where I should go while stitching. I've done nothing with FMQ for such a long time and decided to try Wendy's class for a 'jump start.' I appreciate Wendy's teaching manner and and style. Her tips are most helpful. I will watch this numerous times in the future. The designs she included are printed for use as I keep practicing.
Thanks very much Wendy!

Hi, I am new to quilting I have made 2 quilts Wendy has shown me how to do straight lines and that is what I have done I am hoping to try all the other ways that she is teaching I will be taking it slowly. I am really enjoying doing quilting I am making makeup bags and other bags as well she is very good at explaining all the thing you need to know.

I have watched several other classes on machine quilting and have never been able to get the hang of it. Although I am not completely through it the best advice I have had was to go really slow. All the other classes tell you to keep your machine going fast. I am practicing now and hope to go to a quilt soon.
