Finish Your Quilt Top

You have mastered the construction of your first quilt top – but it’s still not a quilt.  You want to quilt it yourself by machine (hand quilting just takes tooooo long). What are the next steps?  In this workshop you will learn how to assemble your quilt top with a backing and a batting, secure the layers and quilt with a sewing machine using a walking foot and some specialty stitches on your machine.  As this is a beginner class, the quilting lines will be mostly straight. This is a 2 day workshop with some homework.  

NOTE:  This is not a free motion class – see Beginner Free Motion Quilting Workshop.

This is the only “Finish Your Quilt Top” workshop being offered in 2022. 
Register early to avoid disappointment.
