LONGARM CLASS: 2 students per machine. Margaret’s quilts are known for her use of dense, unique backfills. This class focuses on just that because nothing pops creative quilting like great background fills! This class teaches bold, freehand background (negative space) designs, some which use a grid, some deriving from Sashiko and others reminiscent of zentangles. This class takes over where Dense & Dainty and Beautiful Backgrounds Grid-Based Fills end. Note: all patterns taught are different from these previous classes. Skill level: confident beginner, intermediate. Kit fee of $20 includes quilt top, batting, backing and class handouts.
Supply List: new air or water-based marking pen, scissors, straight 1/4″ quilting template (similar to the “Janet-Lee’s Favorite” sold by The Gadget Girls), pencil, paper.
