Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers in Huntsville

"Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers"
free-motion quilting class
"What do you want to learn next after taking a beginning free-motion quilting?"

I've asked students this in many of my Intro to Free-motion Quilting classes and created "Fillers, Spillers and Thrillers" based on their feedback, ideas and requests. I taught this class in Huntsville at Huntsville Sew and Vac mid-January in addition to the Intro to Free-Motion class and the students did amazing work.

We did a little drawing...

then determined a layout...
Sara does her layout for free-motion background fillers
on the floor.
Areas on the quilt top were prepped for the background fillers.

The Elements and Principles of Design were discussed as they related to free-motion quilting motifs.

Several students even used the "Circle in a Square" table runner they made in the reverse appliqué class. Talk about productivity!

Thanks for letting me hang out with you for 3 days in Huntsville! I had a great time.
