Feathering and Stencils
Let's feather smaller areas and find creative ways using stencils and templates. This Beginner Friendly class will help you coordinate designs all over your quilt top from borders to blocks to sashings, even fill designs. You will get dozens of ideas how to divide areas and shapes perfect for feathering. Get clever ways to keep designs asymmetrical so you never have to be perfect and the bobbles and wobbles disappear. We will also explore how to make spines that work in borders and edge-to-edge for easy continuous line designs with feathers flying everywhere.
We will practice how to follow patterns and get lots of tips on how to add "wiggle room" to any design so your results are beautiful. Bring any feather stencils you may have to class and we will practice using the free motion techniques for more machine quilting freedom.
