Handiquilter Longarm: Free - Motion Quilting: You Can Do It!!



Ready to tackle free-motion quilting? It’s as easy as starting with a few  simple shapes! By beginning with drawing, you can develop an inventory of free motion designs  that you can stitch out continuously. Fun fills, creative borders and easy blocks will all be  demonstrated. Quilting out beautiful designs using free motion techniques will take your skills  to the next level.   

Topics Include: 

Drawing basic free-motion designs in a continuous line 

Scaling fills for backgrounds 

Creating your own edge-to-edge designs 

How to fill borders evenly 

Micro quilting and using different feet

Teacher: Chris Davidson

Chris has many years experience sewing clothing, formal wear, and home decorating items. She joined the quilting world after seeing her first Amish-style quilt. Starting with hand quilting, she then began quilting on a small frame with her domestic machine and moved up to longarm quilting with the purchase of a Handi Quilter machine. She now quilts on an Infinity with Pro-Stitcher®. She quilts free motion, with rulers, pantographs, stencils, or anything she can figure out to use to get designs on a quilt. She enjoys antique quilts and what is so close to her heart, memory quilts. Chris discovered a year ago that she loves to teach quilting when she relocated to the Panhandle of Florida and started teaching in a local shop and virtually. She enjoys traveling to quilt shops and getting to know new friends and sharing her love for quilts and her techniques for free motion, ruler work, as well as Pro-Stitcher.
