Do you ever struggle to decide what design is best to quilt on your quilts? Many quilters wonder how they can add visually striking designs to their pieced quilts beyond stitching-in-the-ditch and crosshatching. In this Annie's video class, expert quilter Wendy Sheppard shares many tried-and-true machine-quilting designs and techniques ideally suited to pieced blocks.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Mark pieced blocks for easier machine quilting.
  • Apply machine-quilting techniques to the Ohio Star block.
  • Machine quilt straight-line designs that are not stitch-in-the-ditch.
  • Quilt a crosshatch plaid design.
  • Quilt within the natural geometry, or pieced patches within each block.
  • Free-motion quilt a simple feather wreath.
  • Create an illusion of a quilt block with machine quilting in a contrasting thread.
  • Free-motion quilt allover motifs including sand dunes, leaves and swirls.
  • Free-motion quilt a swirly flower motif for an art-quilt look.
Class includes complete, downloadable instructions to make the exclusive class project, Sherbet Squares Pieced Quilt. Each pieced block in this quilt applies different machine-quilting designs and techniques to expand your quilting skills.
