Beginning Free Motion Machine Quilting

Instructor  Pam Cope

Pam has been making quilts and machine quilting on her home machine for over 20 years.

Class Description:

So many quilts…. So little time!  Learn to make squiggles, swirls, flowers and feathers with your own machine.  We will briefly cover the basics of getting a quilt ready for machine quilting, then practice drawing and stitching a variety of free motion designs.  You will gain confidence in using free motion designs to finish your own quilts.


Sewing machine in good working order, with a free motion or darning foot and feed dogs that can drop down.   You MUST have a working knowledge of your machine – this is not a beginning sewing class and we will not have time to cover how to use your machine in this class. 

Bobbins, bobbin case, foot pedal and power cord for your machine – (its really a bummer if you forget these.)

Free motion (darning) foot.

Thread:  For starting out, I prefer Aurifil No. 50 cotton, or Mettler silk-finish No. 50 cotton. We will discuss other types and weights of thread.

Machingers quilting gloves or (clean) lightweight garden gloves with the rubber dots on the fingers are helpful.  Optional – I will have an extra pair if you want to try them.

I will provide fabric and batting for practice in class

If you have a finished quilt top that you are wanting to quilt, you can bring it and we will discuss design ideas.
