Location: Roosevelt I Room
Teacher: Robbi Joy Eklow
Level: Beginner, Intermediate

The key to smooth quilting is to relax and express yourself. If you can doodle, you can do artful free-motion quilting. This is a great class if you’ve been fearful of free-motion quilting, if you need a bit of help getting started, or if you just want to learn some new tricks! Skills learned here can be used on both sit-down and longarm machines. Don’t miss your chance to conquer free-motion!

Learn to cut and sew this classic block with no set-in seams. The traditional Seven Sisters is a well-loved, but seldom made, quilt pattern because traditionally, every seam is a Y-seam. With Marti’s method you replace the six diamonds in each of the seven stars with one large and three small equilateral triangles. Every seam is sewn edge-to-edge. You’ll be amazed by how easy this traditional beauty can be!
