LONGARM CLASS: 2 students per machine. The structure and uniformity of grid-based backgrounds have been a favorite of Margaret’s for years, appearing often in her competitive quilts. Join her in learning nearly two dozen background fills that will give your quilting the look and repeatability of computer-generated designs. Patterns based on Japanese sashiko designs, as well as more modern designs, will be presented. Don’t miss this chance to stock up on endless quilting options. Skill: confident beginner or intermediate. Kit fee of $20 includes premarked quilt sample top, batting, backing and class handouts.
Supply List: new air or water-based marking pen, straight 1/4″ longarm template (similar to the “Janet-Lee’s Favorite” sold by The Gadget Girls), scissors, pencil, paper. Note gridded or graph paper is helpful.
