Do you ever struggle to decide what design is best to quilt on your quilts? Many quilters wonder how they can add visually striking designs to their pieced quilts beyond stitching-in-the-ditch and crosshatching. In this Annie's video class, expert quilter Wendy Sheppard shares many tried-and-true machine-quilting designs and techniques ideally suited to pieced blocks.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Mark pieced blocks for easier machine quilting.
  • Apply machine-quilting techniques to the Ohio Star block.
  • Machine quilt straight-line designs that are not stitch-in-the-ditch.
  • Quilt a crosshatch plaid design.
  • Quilt within the natural geometry, or pieced patches within each block.
  • Free-motion quilt a simple feather wreath.
  • Create an illusion of a quilt block with machine quilting in a contrasting thread.
  • Free-motion quilt allover motifs including sand dunes, leaves and swirls.
  • Free-motion quilt a swirly flower motif for an art-quilt look.
Class includes complete, downloadable instructions to make the exclusive class project, Sherbet Squares Pieced Quilt. Each pieced block in this quilt applies different machine-quilting designs and techniques to expand your quilting skills.

I thought this class was very informative. So glad I bought it. I've always just stitched in the ditch, but this class had many ideas that I plan to try on my next quilt.

Wendy is a great teacher. She explains in detail about the designs she is using, how to mark
the quilt top. She goes into detail about the walking foot and free-motion foot. I also, really
like the quilt pattern that she chose to work with and the bright colors she used, very eye
catching. I'm now buying the fabrics (from Annie's) to get going on this project.

This is the worst class I have ever purchased. It was not what I expected from the preview. I would not recommend it to anyone. I was very disappointed.
