This is a workshop that truly inspires us to explore our inner painter and our inner quilter! In this dynamic and highly popular class, I share my Watercolor Quilting technique. We will spend the first part of class exploring the wonderful world of painting on fabric to create watercolor-like designs and patterns. In the second part, we will learn the basics of free-motion quilting to create shadows, outline and texture. This class inspires true creative freedom with its multi-media approach, and it is also a fantastic foray into free-motion quilting for a beginning quilter. We will explore how to use the darning foot for quilting, and you will have the opportunity to explore straight lines, curvy lines, and creating background texture. Students will walk away with many colorful blocks and will have gained so much confidence in their free-motion quilting ability! All materials are provided. *

* The studio has machines for students use, but if you prefer to bring your own that's just fine. Please just make a note of this in the notes section at checkout.
