Machine Quilting Class

Yesterday about 16 or 17 Q2 quilters spent the day learning and becoming more comfortable with machine quilting. What a lovely day! Kathy and Steph hosted the meet. The guild had purchased some dvd's which we watched and then tried to duplicate on our "quilt sandwiches" which we prepared in advance. The pictures that I took there did not come out well - I think I may have had it set on macro. However, I just took pics of some of my practice samples and will post a couple of those. Believe me, I have a long way to go but it is becoming more comfortable. This was a very helpful class and took the mystery out of some of the different patterns used for fill. I can readily see that once you get the idea, it will be the practice and actual quilting of the designs that will enable you to quilt with confidence and have your work be appear to be more effortless and uniform. We will have another all day class next Thursday and I look forward to that. (Click to enlarge)

Now that would be a great class. I should make a quilt sandwich, get my machine quilting book out and take my free motion foot for a walk.
