Grid Based Free-Motion Quilting with Christina Cameli, Alberta St Store, Friday, March 8, 10 - 1 pm
Skill Level: Intermediate, Ages 18 and up
This free-motion quilting workshop is an intermediate class for those who have already had an introduction to free-motion quilting. Focus on light and shadow and how they work to create captivating free-motion designs. Manipulate quilting density and repetition to see your quilted textures come to life.
2 fat quarters (solids are best for these exercises)
2 pieces of batting 20” x 24” each
2 pieces of muslin (for backing) 20” x 24” each
Quilting gloves if you use them
Temporary fabric marker
Notebook for sketching (lined or unlined, whatever you have)
Pen for sketching
Optional: Sometimes quilters need to sit up a little higher for comfortable free-motion quilting. Bring a firm pillow (or a folded up quilt!) to sit on if you would like this option.
CLASS PRE-WORK: Before class please baste the above fabric and batting into two quilt sandwiches, with the fat quarter on top, the muslin on the back and the batting in between. (If you are running behind you may bring pins to baste in class but no spray basting in class, please.)
All supplies are available for purchase at Modern Domestic.
Please purchase supplies in advance of your class. If you plan to shop for supplies the day of your class we recommend arriving at least 45 minutes early.
What is an “Intermediate” level class at Modern Domestic?
You’re no longer intimidated by the idea of reading a pattern and comfortable reading a pattern and have made a number of projects. You would like to learn different methods of zipper installation or how to alter your patterns. You’re venturing into more complicated patterns (e.g., lined garments, plackets, collars, zippered fly). Classes are faster paced and generally require homework.
