Machine Quilting in depth with Sue Rasmussen

A fun and relaxed class for those who have dabbled with some machine quilting and who want to go beyond just quilting 'in the ditch', stippling or outline quilting. After a short review of needles and threads, we take off from each student's personal experience and level, working individually to finesse your stitch length, speed, control, tension issues and smooth quilt lines. The emphasis is free-motion unmarked quilting, and to understand 'where to go next', to perfect your hand/eye/foot coordination by practicing a huge variety of designs, such as leaves, vines, flowers, and overall background designs. Here's the opportunity to experiment with your fancy, metallic, and variegated threads. By the last day, students will be quilting beautiful, free form unmarked feathers.

A quilt instructor since 1988, Sue Rasmussen loves to inspire her class participants to stretch beyond traditional confinements through quick methods of paper foundation piecing, machine pieced landscapes and beautiful, intricate machine quilting.
