Quilters don't need to choose between machine quilting and hand quilting—you can do both! Many machine quilters are discovering the rhythm and relaxation that comes with hand quilting their sewn-together projects. In this class, quilters of all types and experience levels will gain valuable insight from expert Pepper Cory into traditional and modern hand quilting styles and techniques.
This class includes step-by-step instructions and diagrams for completing three exclusive quilting projects: Flagstones & Heather Quilt, Modern Twist Table Runner and Sashiko-Style Pillow.
In this class, you'll learn how to:
  • Choose which materials and marking tools work best for hand quilting.
  • Choose a design to complement your quilt.
  • Transfer a design onto your quilt with marking tools.
  • Keep all three layers together with pin and thread basting.
  • Size and customize a stencil design to your quilt.
  • Create a paper model of your border design.
  • Keep your back and body comfortable during quilting.
  • Work the rocking stitch and make small, even stitches.
  • Work the Sashiko-inspired big stitch, also called utility quilting.
  • Impress judges at quilt shows with Pepper's "5 E's of Quilting."
  • And much more!

Pepper's class covers everything, traditional hand quilting, big stitch quilting and even Sashiko. I am new to hand quilting and found this class relaxed, organized and informative. Thank you so much for the wonderful introduction Pepper Cory. I am off to get my crock pot ready and jump into the world of hand quilting!

I loved this class. Pepper is so laid back and easy to follow. She helped me to get the quilting stitch that my mother has been trying for years to teach me, her plastic trick synced it. Also love the way she uses a big hoop instead of quilting frame. I think that's what my problem was before. Can't thank Pepper enough, now I'll be able to finish my own quilts instead of always asking my mother to do it. Have always loved hand sewing.

This was a wonderful class filled to the brim with easy to understand instruction, tips and up close demonstrations. So many facets of learning hand quilting skills were shared in a personal and caring way. I am a new quilter and this was the perfect class for me. It was inspiring and exciting. Can't wait to apply what I have learned. I highly recommend it to all.

Great class. Pepper Corey is so knowledgeable and easy to listen to. This class is aimed at hand quilting but would be useful for any quilter.
