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!
Quilters able to complete confident beginner level projects will successfully be able to learn the skills and techniques taught in this class.

Very disappointed. I am a beginner hand quilter. This course while very nice and offered insight into materials used to make quilts and various methods of quilting did not provide me, a beginner, with the necessary knowledge to start my own quilt. I found online, and in various books on hand quilting how to get started. I am sure my first quilt is not done according to the "rules" of quilting and would never garner an award. But I am content with my quilt and in hand sewing a basic block quilt I am gaining skills, insights into how to better do the next quilt, and find the process relaxing. I reviewed the video with the local quilting store- they felt the quilt Flagstones and Heather to be a more advanced quilt. I am still struggling with how to add the back piece and batting by hand. Again, the extra video on finishing your quilt is on a machine. I have no machine! But with the aid of various videos and problem solving I will complete my first quilt. It would be great if you offered "very basic" hand quilting, starting with stitches and going from there. Pepper is great and I admire her skills. I do play the video when I am stressed with my quilt. Peppers' demeanor once is comforting and gives me the confidence I will finish my first quilt.

This class was fantastic. We are in the midst of the coronavirus 19 and I finally took time to watch this class. We are so fortunate that there isn't a time limit as I would loose big bucks. My life is crazy with running a farm and my husband being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Quilting takes my mind off things and eases the stress. The instructor is very easy to watch and she is so knowledgeable and yet lets you feel that you can do almost anything. Bravo to Pepper . LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this class.

Hands down the best online class I have ever purchased on any subject. Very engaging instructor full of great info. Looking forward to completing the projects in my own time with confidence.

I've machine quilted dozens of small projects but I want to do larger projects I can't get through my domestic garment sewing machine - after watching this class I'm now feeling much better prepared to finally make a hand quilted bed cover. But thanks to this superb class I realize I need to start on something smaller like a set of table mats or even a pot holder to practice the techniques so my bed cover quilting is successful. Pepper is a great teacher and gave so many well presented tips with the excellent step-by-step instruction, I'll be looking for more classes with her now.

Absolutely wonderful class, with a brilliant teacher. Pepper is clear and concise and also gets the quilting message across. I was hooked. Thank you for an excellent class!
