Improve your FMQ

Welcome to the Improve your Free motion Quilting online course with Vendulka Battais

We will be starting on the 30th January.

Requirements:

I would recommend you getting an A4 notepad. If you can’t draw the design you like, it will be difficult to quilt it. So we will spend the same amount practicing on the paper as we will be quilting.

Prepare an old sheet and at least 1 meter of wadding and prepare at least fat quarter sized sandwiches for practicing. It’s not easy to practice on the small bits, because you reach your edges too soon and it’s most difficult around the edges. So at least FQ size is good. It will also teach you to work on bigger pieces, which is what we’re aiming for.
