Quilting in Section Workshop

In this work shop you will be learning the technique of quilting in sections by trying it yourself. This amazing technique will allow you to quilt large quilts on a regular household sewing machine. Three variations will be taught. Two of these techniques are done so that the finished quilt has no visible sign of being quilted in sections. Various quilts that have been quilted with these methods will be available to see. Other places that these applications could be used will also be explored. Handouts for further reference will be available. It is my hope that this workshop will be both fun and informative for you. Knowledge of machine quilting is a prerequisite.
