This course is designed for beginners who want to learn how to machine quilt or if you have already taken a course and haven’t quite got the hang of it yet, then this is for you. We start with how to pick designs, threads. Then we get into the fun and learn how to machine quilt loops, hearts, leaves , stars, and stippling while getting familiar with machine tensions. By the end of the course you will be able to machine quilt comfortably and have several machine quilting designs in your wheel house to choose from.
We will also cover the use of different battings and how to baste. Students will then learn how to apply these new found skills to quilt their own quilts.
