I took a machine quilting class while I was at Quilt Fest last week. I throughly enjoyed it. Lisa Brothman was the teacher and she did a beautiful job. We started with our name and then she gave us other designs to try. Some came easy others not so much as you can see from this sample.
But by the end of class I was feeling much better about my free motion quilting and was enjoying playing with the many designs she taught.
One of my favorite parts about the class was when she taught bobbin drawing. What a fun way to use heavier threads and get a new effect on your quilting projects. I see a lot more of this in my future.
