Quilting on Your Domestic Machine – Full or Half Day
Learn how to confidently finish quilts at home using your domestic sewing machine. The course begins with hands-on basting and machine setup steps, progresses to straight line quilting with a walking foot / dual feed, and continues with all over and grid based free motion motifs. Packed with tips for how to have fun quilting your quilts, Yvonne aims to empower and inspire your innate creativity. Best as a full day workshop but can focus on either straight line or free motion quilting introduction for a half day workshop.

I enjoy making complete quilts from start to finish, and I am excited to share my quilts and quilting journey. I’ll discuss the impact of social media and its influence on my work as I share about my quilting journey that started 20+ years ago. Exact quilts shown will vary.
