While those who quilt with free-motion feet are busy practicing you’ll be quilting directly on your project just by marking a few lines or guides. The walking foot can be used for more than just stitch in the ditch and straight lines. Let me show you a dozen designs, all done with the walking foot. We will, of course, start with stitch-in-the-ditch and matchsticks just to get you warmed up, then on to fun stuff using stencils and templates. On the second day of this two-day class you will paper piece the center block, then assemble your blocks using the Quilt-As-You Go method.
