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."

I really enjoyed Pepper's hand quilt class very much. She is good explaining each detail that I need. I love hand quilting but everyone has a different ways, it can be so confused. Well I just get a little here and there to suit me to finish what I started, so yes she's a good instructor.

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.
