We have all used the tried-and-true method of standing and staring to design our quilting. While this sometimes works, there is a much easier and quicker method of designing. Come join Lisa as she shares her Divide and Design technique and learn how to translate that onto your quilts! Students will start with a quilt top of their own and leave with ideas for custom quilting! After taking this design class, you’ll never be stumped at the quilting phase again!

Join Becky for the day and learn how to quilt by hand in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Hand quilting stitches add beautiful texture and softness to your quilts. You will love the relaxed rhythm of hand quilting and experience real joy as you watch your stitches enhance your quilt. First, you will explore a variety of quilting designs and the different ways to mark them on your quilt top. Then, learn how to baste the layers and prepare the edges of your quilt so they stay tidy as you work. Most importantly, you will practice a classic hand quilting stitch: the rocking stitch. You will have the choice of making small, traditional stitches, or showy, fast, big stitches as you find your unique style.

Registration for this class includes show admission for Wednesday.
