with Ann Petersen
Learn to quilt continuous line designs such as fillers, all-overs, borders and stand alone motifs without spending your time tying off and burying tedious threads! Follow continuous line patterns along with award-winning quilter Ann Petersen as you quilt a sampler with stipples, hearts, leaves, stars, snowflakes and more! With Ann's guidance, you'll feel comfortable turning non-continuous line designs into continuous ones in no time.
Meet Ann, learn how to follow and transfer continuous line quilting diagrams, and get a feel for stitching out your work.
Practice along with Ann as you gain control of basic and straight-line stippling, adding loops and motifs as you gain more control.
Rehearse your new skills with hearts, leaves, stars, snowflakes and filler designs that can be applied to blocks and borders.
Repeat the graceful lines of a design in multiple repetitions, ranging from hearts and stars to more complicated echoed patterns.
Ann explains ways to quilt circles, employ crosshatching and radiating lines, and create echoing effects in the background.
Add connective and decorative lines, or take lines away to maintain the design's integrity while making an efficient stitch path.
Learn to create your designs in multiple passes between connected motifs, resulting in a seamless pattern all the way across.
Apply Ann's techniques to any design, laying out your strategy and rehearsing before sewing to troubleshoot tricky areas.
"Ann Petersen is a great teacher. She is responsive to questions and carefully builds our skill level as she proceeds from lesson to lesson. Now I have the confidence to make my free motion quilting continuous and I look forward to practicing writing my name."
