Free Motion Quilting with Penny Olive

A unique series taught at Blakeman Vacuum & Sewing by Penny Olive This series of classes moves beyond information and involves participants in LOTS of doodling and quilting It is a hands–on class interspersed with valuable information and hints to help you complete quality quilts and learn the “ins and outs” of free motion quilting. The initial class will concentrate on learning to control your machine (we all love control!) and simple circles and loops. By the end of the day we will add a few designs into those loops. The following classes will progress to leaves, flowers, feathers, swirls and stippling, wreaths, roses, personal embroidery and even a little modern relaxed straight–line quilting. We will culminate by putting them all together into allover and block designs. With the quilting done in class and an average of 15 to 30 minutes of practice each day, by the end of the class, most participants will have the confidence to begin completion of their first quilt top.
