Layers & Lines: How to Create a Quilting Design (Hands-On Workshop Version)

This class is available in person, or live online through the Zoom platform.

Ever since I started teaching Free-Motion Mastery in a Month, the question my students ask most often is "Now that I can quilt, how do I decide what designs to put where on my quilt?"  Layers & Lines answers that question.

We'll begin with four concepts: Story, Layers, Lines & Contrast. Together we'll work through a variety of simple, hands-on drawings that will teach you how to use these concept to create a quilting design. Then, using these concepts, you'll mark and quilt a pieced block and stitch it out to quilt your own beautiful design. You can also bring quilt tops to class for suggestions on how to quilt them.

Note: This class can be taught as design-only or with machines. If it is taught as design-only we will design the quilting for the block in class and you will quilt it at home.

After Layers & Lines, you will be able to create quilting designs that take your quilt tops from special to spectacular!
