Free Motion Quilting with Leonie Fraser
9.30am setup for a 10:00am start – 2.30pm
This course will encourage you to break away from straight lines with the walking foot to be more adventurous in your quilting, taking you through the steps required and boost your confidence and creativity.
Over the 4 sessions you will develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in free motion quilting. If you do all the sessions and homework, you can decide whether you will end up with cushions, a throw or a bed quilt.
You will choose your materials and will be provided with designs by Leonie that you can confidently complete at home. Leonie will also assist you to decide whether designs you bring to class are suitable for free motion quilting.
Techniques that will be covered over the length of the course:
- Choice of fabric and wadding
- Planning and designing a quilt layout
- Preparing fabrics for quilting
- Starting and stopping
- Marking fabric with a design
- Points and corners
- Continuous line quilting
- Stippling and fill patterns
- Loops and curves and scrolls
A materials list will provided on registration.
