This is part of our Free Motion Longarm Skill Builder Program- each class is designed to build your skills on the longarm. All classes will be taught on INNOVA longarms at Quilts on the Corner in Sandy Utah.
In this class we will spend between 2 and 21/2 hours quilting on Innova longarms. You will learn the building blocks of free motion feathers and different styles and designs. You already know the shapes because free motion quilting is just doodling with needle and thread! In fact, our classes will have you practice with paper and pencil, as well as on a simulator to get you warmed up.
As you draw and stitch, we will discuss how to adapt different feathers to fill shapes, go around corners and even create depth and movement to a quilt. We will practice using different textures and designs within the feathers to add pop and excitement to your designs!
This is a great class to take after the Free Motion Fillers class on Feb 15th, but beginners are welcome! This is a hands on class with one or two people per machine. Materials and kit is included with the class: but bring a notebook so you can bring home ideas and inspiration for your next quilts!
If you have NEVER longarmed before, you are welcome, but you may like to take our Longarm Rental Certification Course first to get some practice before class and be comfortable using an INNOVA - not required.
