Quilt Any Design with Six Basic Shapes
Skill Level: All levels
Materials: Download Material List
LIVE ONLINE through the Zoom platform.
Six basic shapes make the building blocks of all free-motion quilting patterns. Learn what they are, how to embed them in your muscle memory BEFORE you go to the sewing machine, and how to combine them to create any pattern. Quilters of all levels can use this technique for either domestic or longarm machines. Based on my book Free-Motion Mastery in a Month: A Block a Day to Machine Quilting Success.
