Meet Natalia Bonner, who begins class by breaking down quilt blocks into the basic shapes that will guide your quilting. Get acquainted with the tools you need before learning how to mark (and why it can be helpful!).
Looking for motifs to fill square or rectangular spaces? Natalia shows you how to quilt a variety of motifs that should do just the trick. You'll see how to plan your designs with minimal marking and how to cut down on starts and stops by quilting in a continuous line.
Tackle motifs for those tricky angular areas. Natalia helps you rethink your angled shapes and break them down into more manageable chunks. When you move on, you'll see how to cross over your piecing to create new shapes on your quilt top.
Quilt curves without spinning in circles. Find out how as you mark and quilt a variety of designs that are perfect for circles and curved piecing. Along the way, you'll learn to modify your crosshatching to add curves with rulers. You'll even practice stitching in the ditch along tricky curved areas.
Discover how you can accommodate different lengths and widths in the planning of your border, before Natalia helps you identify the motifs that are most effective for your width. Plus, tackle turning corners to get a consistent look to your motif.
Natalia ends class by teaching you how to enhance the design of your blocks as well as quilt around appliqué, all for maximum impact.
