ONSITE: Free Motion Quilting: Drawing with Your Sewing Machine

This fast-paced workshop introduces the various ways to use your sewing machine to draw on fabric. Both free motion and conventional quilting methods will be explored. Participants will produce several samples during the class suitable for use as pillow tops. Methods of joining machine quilted blocks will also be demonstrated.
