Patricia Delaney of Crabtree Lane Studio

“Meet Me at the Bar”- Designing Linear Motifs

Meet Me at the Bar Supply List

This class is a great way to think about quilting the quilt. We will discuss designs that will be used for any long, narrow areas or bars such as in log cabin, spider web, courthouse step or pineapple blocks. These also work well in narrow borders and may be adapted to any width border. Besides the many designs in the handouts, we will spend time creating new motifs to work with your own quilts. Even if you are not a confident free motion quilter, you will come away with very doable designs for your quilts. This class incorporates both design work and free motion machine practice in a stress free environment. This is an all day class. All levels.
