Advanced Free Motion Quilting

In this class I will take you beyond meandering, beyond loops, beyond swirls.  You will learn to quilt with heavy weight threads for more WOW in your quilts.  You will also learn to free motion stenciled feathers, trapunto and hyper quilting.  Come and be super creative.  Prior experience with free motions quilting is required.  

What we need is 2 layered fabric sandwiches, approximately 22 inches squared.   
I would recommend that you put a cotton or cotton blend batting between the layers of one of the sandwiches and just bring the 2 pieces of for the second sandwich - I will bring the batting.

Your machine in good working order.  It is very important to bring the machine you plan to free motion quilting on.  

All the feet that came with your machine and a "daring" or "free motion quilting" foot that fits your machine.  Not all the feet fit all machines so be sure to check with your sewing machine dealer that knows your brand of machine to make sure you have the proper foot.  

Thread - Part of the class will be learning about what threads for these special techniques.  But also bring one spool of water soluble thread and other threads from your stash.

A size 80 or 90 Top Stitch needle.  

Some sort of extension table for your machine.  If you don't have an acrylic table made for your machine, this would be the time when you would want to consider purchasing one made for your machine.  Smith Owen Sewing can order one if you like.  If you do not have an acrylic table, I would recommend that you bring coffee table size books that when stacked equal the height of your sewing machine base.  This will then create and extended surface for your machine.

Quilting gloves,  I prefer the machingers.  

Spiral bound sketch pad - at least 8x10

Pen or pencil for notes and drawing.  

Fabric Marking tools that you can see on your fabric.

If you have a quilt top that you would like to bring that we can discuss quilting and thread options for, the would be GREAT!
