Machine Quilting

Free-Motion & More

with Wendy Butler Berns
Overcome your free-motion fears and build confidence in your machine quilting. Wendy Butler Berns shows you easy techniques from start to finishing!

Overcome your free-motion fears! Wendy guides you step by step through a simple machine quilting process, from setting up a workspace to sandwiching, pin basting and binding. As you practice, first on paper, then with your machine, you'll build confidence in your machine quilting skills. Wendy teaches you the stipple stitch, outlining and easy curves before moving on to more adventurous designs, including zigzagging, continuous vines and continuous stars. You’ll also learn to mark your quilt with homemade stencils and special marking tools or forgo marking all together!
