I really feel like a chicken that's been sitting on a big egg for the past 3 months and now it's finally hatched! Here's a bit about this brand new class:
Just in case you can't watch the video, in Volume 2 you will learn 50 designs (10 brand new, never published before) from 5 new families: Overlapping, Foundational, Edge to Edge, Edge to Center, and Stem Centered. These designs have a much wider range of texture and really unique way of filling through the different areas of your quilts.
Speaking of quilt, for this class we're changing up the project we work on to learn the designs. This time we're stitching out everything into a large tote bag:
This tote bag finishes really big so you can carry loads of crafting supplies, but when you're quilting it on your sewing machine the panels will feel small and easy to move. We're also going to learn these designs on a smaller scale so you get the most bang for your buck - the greatest number of repeats of a design or shape within a small amount of space.
In addition to the 50 designs and tote bag construction, we're also going to learn more about quilting scale, how to pick thread colors, and how to diagnose and fix your thread break issues. I've included a thread break cheat sheet for you to work through whenever you're having thread issues on your machine so you can figure out exactly what is going wrong and get back on track with quilting.
Of course if you ever have issues or questions, you are a click away from connecting with me and getting the help you need! The Craftsy platform is specially designed so you can ask your question right at the spot that confuses you. I check and answer questions every single day so you're sure to get your questions answered within 24 hours.
While you're there, I would definitely advise signing up for some of the free classes Craftsy offers. Perfect Pizza at Home has radically improved my pizza making ability (much to Josh and James delight!) and Know Your Wool blew my mind with the information about rare breeds of sheep and the wool they create.
If you're looking for an awesome free quilting class, definitely sign up for Amy Gibson's 2012 Block of the Month and learn how to piece 20 beautiful blocks and learn a variety of techniques. These free classes are a great place to get started if you've never taken a class on Craftsy before!
I really hope to see you in this new class Free Motion Fillers Volume 2. Remember, you can always find 50% off links to all of my classes here, so just in case, here's the list of all of them:
