In this mini class, expert Lori Kennedy helps you decide by creating a quilting plan. Follow along as Lori shows you how to choose and combine quilt motifs, thread and batting to flatter your style. Learn her easy-to-follow approaches for any quilt, from traditional tops with sashing and borders to embroidered ones with appliqué. With Lori’s step-by-step guidance, you can break down the quilting process into manageable steps, allowing you to keep it simple and get it done!

Class Sessions

Creating a Quilting Plan (17:19)
Lori Kennedy starts off by sharing a step-by-step approach that helps you decide what to quilt on your finished tops. She also offers thread and batting suggestions, and shows you how to test your quilt designs without actually stitching them.

Stabilizing Your Quilt (9:52)
In this lesson, Lori discusses the importance of stabilizing quilts. Find out what seams need to be stabilized, and how to properly stitch in the ditch with a walking or free-motion foot.

All-Over Quilting (14:31)
Choosing motifs may seem daunting, but Lori makes the process fun and easy. Follow along as she shares key considerations for all-over quilting using one of her floral favorites. Understand why scale matters, what to avoid on your home machine, and how to add design elements to give your quilts a personal touch.

Block-by-Block Quilting (8:03)
Watch as Lori demonstrates her method for quilting individual blocks using two threads, a focal motif and outlining. See how to work in the spaces between and around blocks, such as on sashing and borders, and create secondary designs with your quilting.

Quilting Appliqué & Embroidery (7:16)
Textured tops can be challenging to quilt. In this lesson, Lori shows you how to emphasize handwork using minimal quilting near appliqué elements. See how to frame an embroidered block with quilting and stitch grids to form a background for handwork.

Quilting Negative Space (10:00)
Finally, discover three ways to quilt negative space: an all-over approach, repeating “ghost” elements, and dividing and conquering. Which one to use comes down to personal preference, so try them all and see what works best!
