How Should I Quilt this Quilt?

Thursday, March 20th, 6:30-7:30

Professional longarm quilter Kathy Koch of Threadbear Quilting will discuss ways to find inspiration, creative ideas for simple and effective quilting that you can do yourself or ask your longarmer to do. We will also discuss thread choices and why one design or color might work better than another.

Whether a beginner or an accomplished quilter, we sometimes need help getting over that hurdle of how to quilt the quilt. Even if you struggle with free motion quilting, there are techniques that make quilting easier. This quick and free session will hopefully start those creative juices flowing!

Please feel free to bring a top that you are struggling with and we will brainstorm ideas.

This class is free, but you must register to take it!

In this class, you'll learn how to paper piece using the fabulous pattern Felix the Fox.
