Quilting on your home sewing machine: Yes, you can!

Free-motion machine quilting and
Big Stitch hand quilting.
Do you free-motion quilt? This little pouch has free-motion machine quilting as well as Big Stitch hand quilting. They complement each other, don't you think?

Free-motion quilting is therapeutic for me and I quilt all my quilts—big and small—on a home sewing machine.

Would you like to learn to free-motion quilt on your home machine?

I am teaching my Intro to Free-motion Quilting classes in October, November and early December in several Tennessee and Georgia quilt shops and sewing centers. Check my class schedule and contact the shops to reserve your space. This Saturday, I'll be teaching at Pins and Needles quilt shop.

Not to worry, my Intro to Free-motion Quilting class is a beginner class! No prior machine quilting experience is necessary. I give lots of free-motion information, tips, demos and we also talk about inspiration for quilting designs (I bring show and tell). And you'll do this on your home sewing machine. Yes, you can do it!

Last Saturday, I attended the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild meeting and guild members, Gerry and Camille, showed quilts they quilted on their home sewing machine. These quilts were not small wall hangings. They were good sized lap quilts! Way to go, ladies.

You can absolutely do free-motion quilting (and straight line quilting) on your home sewing machine! Join me for an upcoming class and I'll teach you. And, here's Tim Latimer's blog post and a video on Big Stitch if you want to add a little Slow Stitching to the mix. Quilt on!
