There’s no way around it, practice is the best teacher for free motion quilting. I’m sure none of you have an unfinished quilt top (or two) laying around!?
Drygoods Design has the perfect environment to pick up this skill in their Make*Do*Mend studio with quality Berninas. This is a two-session open studio (or one if that works) Tuesday, March 25th and April 6th from 6:15 to 9:15.
If you enjoy a laid back, social environment to learn something new at your own pace then this is the perfect set-up for you. I’ll help guide you on your way to a divine loop or geometric quilting design you’ve been envisioning on your projects.
A little inspiration perhaps?

This looks like so much fun – but sadly I arrive in Seattle on the 3rd and my plane takes off in the middle of the class on the 6th. Hopefully I will have better luck next time.
Thank you for the inspiring quilting photos.
I love the top left style and I think I will try it in the sashing or perhaps the blocked border of my next FMQ practice… Thanks for the inspiration!!
This is so perfect! Thank you! I’m trying to psych myself up to FMQ a baby quilt I just finished piecing, and these designs are great. You are so right–practice practice practice! Is it ok if I use your tiled image and links in a blog post about your blog post and this exact topic? I’ll link to and give you all the credit, of course! Thank you!
I love FMQ but never seem to get beyond stippling so a big thank you for all this gorgeous inspiration!
