Meet your instructor, quilter extraordinaire Angela Walters, as she walks you through the different types of quilt tops you'll explore in this class. Then, learn how you can audition your designs before you quilt them.
Learn how to use quilting to enhance appliqué, complete a pattern or add detail. Pick up professional tips for using monofilament thread and quilting through extra layers. See how echoing accentuates appliquéd designs and learn how to quilt leaves, pebbles and swirls together for dense fillers.
Squeeze dramatic design into small spaces as you explore quilting that works on tops with lots of tiny piecing. Group blocks or pieces together for use on larger designs or break down quilting motifs for use on small elements. Discover the universal appeal of continuous curves and all-over wavy designs.
Don't be scared away from quilting intricate paper-pieced tops that often have bulky seams and intricate designs! Angela shows you how to break them down into manageable sections and demonstrates two great designs that work well with paper-pieced tops: wishbone stitching and the back-and-forth filler.
Whether you prefer traditional, modern or art quilts, you'll love Angela's quilting advice for unifying your design or highlighting favorite blocks! Repeat a few favorite motifs throughout or join blocks together by unifying the spaces between them. Learn how to create perfect serpentine lines and swirl hooks.
Don't become daunted by an open space on your quilt! Angela shows you how to use echo quilting to break large spaces into smaller ones. You'll learn how to manage negative space and quilt motifs and geometric designs, too!
Have an ocean of borders and unsure what to do? Break rows of borders into chunks, traveling from one to the next as you work your way down the quilt. Discover how to quilt borders that highlight the centerpiece, and learn how to add paisley feathers and square chains to these tight spaces.
