Example of an

Machine Quilting I
This is an example of an "orphan" block
that is ditch quilted and stippled.

Join Julie Baird in this class designed for the beginning machine quilter. We will discuss the tools and supplies needed to quilt on your domestic sewing machine. This includes sewing machine care and setup, quilting tools, workspace set up, threads, batts, fabrics, pressing, pre-washing. Next it's hands-on basting of a small quilt sandwich. Then stitch in the ditch instruction and practice.

You'll learn to quilt stippling, a background fill pattern. You'll draw it and have class time for guided practice. Additional patterns will be introduced as time permits.

Have a top sitting at home? You're encouraged to bring it to class for ideas how to quilt it.
