"How Do I Quilt It?" Workshop by Christa Watson - May 20, 2023 - SG



Look who's coming our way! It's the amazing Christa Watson and we are soooo excited! If you are not confident in quilting on your domestic machine, you will be after this workshop! She makes you feel right at home! 
     This class will answer the burning question "How do I quilt it?" with plenty of hands-on practice and real-world advice. In addition to exploring Christa's methods of preparing the quilt and making a plan, students will break down the domestic machine quilting process as well as learn to divide and conquer each step for guaranteed quilting success.
     Students will first understand the theory behind Christa's "perfectly imperfect" quilting techniques. They'll be motivated with loads of inspirational images and plenty of "in-the-cloth" quilting examples.  Then, they'll practice sketching out motifs and quilting them on practice samples using a walking foot and free-motion techniques.
     Finally, they'll put together what they've learned to create - unique quilting plans using images of their own quilts printed on paper.
     Students will leave class empowered with the knowledge that they can, indeed, quilt their own quilts!

***A copy of Christa's book "How Do I Quilt It" is required for this class, and students are encouraged to bring in one small quilt top for group discussion***
