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!

I was very pleased with the class. I especially liked Pepper's demonstration of how to size and customized the stencil. I now feel ready to tackle more complex designs with confidence.

I love this video. Pepper is so good at explaining and demonstrating her work. I am so happy I purchased this video as it is so informative and helpful. I am getting a quilt ready to hand quilt and wasn't sure how to begin. I feel confident that I can do it now. Thank you for the information.

This is a great class for a beginner as well as an experienced quilter. Pepper Cory is a terrific teacher. She is very personable, has a pleasing personality and is very easy to listen to. She covers every detail while sharing her knowledge and skill of hand quilting. The class is broken down into small increments that make it very understandable and easy to follow.

Pepper Cory is a wonderful teacher; she makes it so easy to understand the steps in the hand quilting process. The section on marking your quilt is broken down into understandable increments, well done. I just wish I could have the opportunity to sit with her and quilt. Pepper thank you for sharing you love of hand quilting.

Great class!!! Pepper is very laid back and goes through things slowly and thoroughly enough that even I could understand. I feel like I know enough to make a quilt by hand. I really appreciated her letting us know what we need and how to use it. I didn't have a clue before this video. Thanks!!!
