This is a very thorough class with many helpful tips and techniques demonstrated by award-winning quilter Ann Petersen. Ann has a very calm, patient manner and takes a lot of time explaining the various techniques. She begins with a discussion on choosing a design or theme for your quilt and goes on to talk about auditioning threads and choosing the proper needle. Her basting method of choice is spray basting, which she demonstrates. She also discusses how to set up your work area and your machine. The next sections of the class are devoted to showing how she actually quilts a whole quilt (up to queen size) with her standard-sized Bernina machine. In this section she demonstrates stitching in the ditch, marking the quilt and free motion quilting. Later lessons include very detailed directions on how to quilt an even larger quilt by splitting the batting, splitting the quilt top, quilting block by block and quilting with a center medallion by adding additional borders. A great source of information and inspiration.

Quilting a queen sized quilt on your home sewing machine is not that hard. Planning...Planning....Planning. Practice...Practice...Practice. Above all, there are no rules. Try all the suggestions and do what works best for you.
