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.

I purchased this class because Pepper is the instructor. She is such a great teacher and she makes everything look so easy. I will for sure be quilting my next project by hand. I wish Pepper would teach more classes.

So very pleased with this purchase. I wanted to learn hand quilting for a long time. Looks like with this class I am finally doing it. It is so much easier than a expected. I like the teacher very much. With this course I will learn Big Stitch quilting. I was interested in this also. Now I have both techniques and I am so happy. Hand quilting is relaxing, I sit and stitch and for me it's a nice change from other types or crafts that a do.

Thank you for another great class.

I have never made a better purchase in my quilting time than I did when I purchased this class. It is so easy to follow, and if I had known then what I know now, my quilts would have all been so much better. No more mistakes, she tells you everything to make a quilt right. Best instructor ever. Thanks.

I watched this class because I wanted to learn big-stitch quilting. After watching I was able to hand quilt a bed size quilt for the first time ever. Interestingly, after that experience I tried traditional hand quilting again and found it a much easier experience. I'm no longer intimidated by the process of hand quilting, no matter the the style. Pepper Cory is an ideal instructor: thorough, detailed, and encouraging in a very calm, reassuring way. This class is perfect for the beginner, but really, everyone can benefit from watching it. I've watched it several times and each time I've picked up something new.

A wealth of material, and plenty of "secret" tips to make the quilting experience successful and enjoyable. Pepper Cory has a quiet, confident manner. It is clear she knows what works and what doesn't. The projects are lovely as is, and can be adapted to suit different colorways. I am looking forward to getting the cuffs off my old athletic socks and getting started!!
