Who says quilting has to be done on a longarm? Learn how to finish your quilts on your domestic sewing machine while enjoying all the control your walking foot has to offer. We will cover the preparation basics to get you started, then you will make several stitched samples with different quilting styles that can all be achieved with your walking foot. You will learn traditional crosshatch grid quilting, modern matchstick quilting, how to combine stitches, and how the beautiful serpentine stitch will elevate your technique to create beautiful organic curves. In no time, you will be executing sharp turns and making accurate straight line polygon spirals and circular spirals that will allow you to finish your quilts in the comfort of your home on your domestic sewing machine. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
Please note this day-long class provides the same information as the combination of Catherines two 3-hour walking foot quilting classes, Walking Foot Quilting: Get Out of the Ditch and Walking Foot Quilting: Organic Curves and Super Spirals.
