Saturday Chapter: Saturday May 6th Program: “Free Motion Quilting Ideas” Taught by Christy PrengerChristy will show us how she decides how to long arm her quilts. She will bring clear Plexiglas that she lays out and tries her ideas. She is offering to help you brainstorm on your quilts after her talk. This is good for home machines as well as long-armers.
Supplies- a quilt top that you are not sure how to quilt, a few dry erase markers and your imagination.
