Beginning with a review of free-motion sewing just in case you are new to it or feel a little rusty, Leni will move onto the easiest way to transfer the details you want onto your quilt using a variety of threads. This is a skill-building class rather than a project class so we will be learning new techniques that students will be able to apply to their own art quilts.
