Basic quilters will enjoy Ann's helpful, easy-to-follow instructions, while more advanced quilters will pick up dozens of tips and tricks for whole-quilt finishing, splitting your block or batting, quilting blocks as-you-go or adding borders to a central medallion.

Beyond Basic Machine Quilting

You'll learn how to mark motifs or stitch freehand, adding depth and richness to your designs. From preparation to finishing, Ann’s guidance will make your machine quilting projects easier even as they become more elaborate. Ann gives you the tools to conquer those free-motion fears and make a complicated quilt a fun challenge - not an exercise in frustration.

Playing with Curves

Don’t let curves be your archenemy. Ann demystifies sewing curved pieces to create stunning blocks full of movement and grace. Ann will show you how to cut and pin your pieces before easing them through the sewing machine to create curved seams free of puckering or pleats. Once you master sewing a gentle curve, add paper piecing or even free-form piecing into the mix to create a whole new variety of quilts.

You'll learn how to cut arcs using a variety of custom, reusable templates, in addition to step-by-step instructions for constructing each of Ann's intricate blocks. You'll leave the class with five patterns and templates that can be made into place mats or any quilt top of your choice, as well as a burst of confidence every time you sew on a curve.
