Introduction to Free Motion Quilting



Supply List: Things you will need for class.

  • One ~18x22” cotton quilt sandwich (2 fat quarters with batting between)—dark solids work well with light thread or light solids with dark thread. Do not pin or baste prior to class.
  • Roll of Blue Tape or Packing Tape
  • Sewing Machine in good working order (with instruction manual). Must have a plexiglas surround for your machine (e.g., Sew-Steady table) or a small surround that comes with some machines. You must have room for your hands on both sides of the needle to move the quilt under the needle.
  • Free motion quilting foot or darning foot for machine and the ability to drop or cover the feed-dogs. If unsure, bring all of the feet for your machine. No walking foot please.
  • Basic notions including small scissors or snips, seam ripper, pins, etc.
  • 1 pkg. Schmetz Microtex or Quilting machine needles size 70, 75 or 80 (a variety pack is great)
  • #1 Curved safety pins, 2 dozen or more
  • Blue water-soluble marking pen and/or white ceramic pencil (e.g., Bohin, SewLine or Fons & Porter) for marking designs. Chaco Liners are also a good option. Blue line for white/light fabrics, white ceramic/chalk for dark fabrics.
  • Threads for stitching: Contrasting thread for practice squares. Recommended threads are Aurifil 50 weight cotton or Glide 40 weight poly, or similar.
  • Your choice of something to give your fingers traction as you move the fabric sandwich under the needle. Suggestions include Machingers or Grabaroos quilting gloves, garden gloves with rubber nubs on fingertips, finger cots. A non-greasy lotion with glycerin (Neutrogena makes several options) also gives nice traction when quilting.

The shop will open at 9:30 for you to set up for class and get last minute supplies. You may enter through the back door of the shop.  You may bring a lunch or order out to our local bar and grill.  A fridge  and microwave is available for your use.
