For some of us, the hardest part about making a quilt is deciding what design to use to assemble the quilt sandwich. Using stencils and templates takes much of that guesswork away, allowing you to finish your quilts with confidence. In this class, expert instructor Wendy Sheppard shows how stencil patterns complement pieced and appliqued blocks. She then demonstrates marking and machine quilting the stencil designs onto the class projects, a set of five pretty pot holders.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Select the right-size stencil for quilt blocks.
  • Mark stencil designs onto quilt blocks.
  • Alter stencil orientation on blocks for different looks.
  • Apply stenciled designs to pieced and appliqued blocks.
  • Achieve an art-quilt look with asymmetrical designs.
  • Free-motion quilt the stencil designs using your home sewing machine.
  • Embellish stencil designs to make them one-of-a-kind creations.
  • Machine quilt stenciled designs with different colors.
  • Complete five pot holders while practicing the techniques taught in the video.
Class includes complete, downloadable instructions to make five exclusive projects with the Shades of Sea Glass Pot Holders pattern.

Great class but free motion is so hard for me. Also I did not see or heard how the instructor just quilted feathers and pebbles and leafs and swirls. It would be helpful to draw them on the instructions paper so that we can practice. I would love to know the principal of drawing feathers. I have tried free motion but I have not conquer it yet. It is just very hard. Please help!!

Wendy is a great instructor. I was unable to get the stencils needed for this project and she took the time to find them and let me know where to get them. She got back to me quickly. I was very impressed with her class and helpfulness.
