Quilt With Us

A quilting class that won't result in a UFO!

I have lately been avoiding taking classes through the guild because they all seem to wind up adding a UFO to my pile.  I said I would not start one project until I finished at least two significant UFOs that haunt my sewing room.  

 

I have been working to that goal for a while now but this month I am taking a non-sewing class!  The class is about drafting quilting designs that fit specific areas of your quilt!  I've been working very hard at improving my FMQ skills so I don't have to send out every top I complete and I figured this would help add more "me" to my work - not always using someone else's designs and patterns.  I won't have to purchase stencils that may or may not fit and the designs will be my own.  I'm really excited and I love learning new things.

Now this could be a very useful class.  Learn lots so you can give us pointers now and then..LOL.

Being able to design your quilting to fit the space is an excellent tool to possess.  I still use some of my purchased stencils but enlarge or shrink them down to size.

What an excellent idea!  it's like a test run before you commit!  I'm going to have to try that one!

Here's another idea for you.  I have a friend that has a mid arm machine and before she quilts she does this process. Takes a photo of the quilt top, copies it out on a 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of paper (in color), then places lightweight tracing paper over it and draws a quilting design to see if she likes it.  She keeps making changes until she likes it and then will make a template if needed to transfer markings.  She has used the press and seal method and liked that alot.  Her quilts are incredible!
