When: 1 day, Thursday,19 September 2019
Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm
Where: Pyramid Centre, James Street, St Marys, Ontario
You've learned walking foot quilting basics and you're ready for more.
Join Jacquie to expand your walking foot quilting skills and your toolbox of designs. Learn new designs and creative adaptations of familiar designs as well as marking techniques and tips and tricks for successful walking foot quilting. Students should be experienced walking foot quilters. This is not a beginner class and we will not be spending time on basic skills.
Book: WALK: Mastering Machine Quilting With Your Walking Foot
Extra sewing machine needles for quilting
Thread for quilting (I recommend 40 or 50 weight aurifil thread in both the top and bobbin) Thread that contrasts with your practice sandwiches will help you see your quilting stitches better while practicing.
Optional: 1 spool of 28 weight white aurifil thread
Painter's tape – 1 roll approximately 1" wide
Quilting gloves (optional)
6" x 24" acrylic ruler with 60 degree lines for marking
Fabric safe marker
Hancy Pounce Pad and iron off chalk (White) (https://www.fulllinestencil.com/product/ultimate-quilt-pounce-pad-iron-off/)
Sketchbook or notebook and pencil
(6) 12" x 18" prepared quilt sandwiches for practice (top, batting, and backing)
(1) 24" x 24" prepared quilt sandwich for practice (top, batting, and backing)
Practice tops need to be whole cloth and solid fabrics. Please use a color that will contrast with the white quilt pounce powder. I recommend low loft cotton batting. You can pin baste or spray baste your prepared quilt sandwiches but they need to be basted and ready to quilt. Spray basted quilt sandwiches will be easier to mark and are recommended. Please do not bring pieced quilt sandwiches for practice.
Optional but recommended:
1 finished unquilted quilt top (We'll use this top to talk together about how to quilt our quilts with designs we can accomplish with our walking foot.)
NOTE: All fees are non refundable.
