Good Morning, Quilters!
It’s an exciting day here at The Inbox Jaunt as we are launching our third Craftsy video: Creating a Quilting Plan: Approaches for Any Quilt (click here to see the 90 second preview!!!)
This class is SHORT but SWEET and is classified as a Craftsy mini-course and is available for just $9.99!!!
In less than an hour you can learn a wide variety of tips for transforming YOUR quilt tops into family heirlooms!
THE CLASS MATERIALS
Be sure to download the Class Materials–they are a very important part of this class. You might even want to make several copies right away–and work through them for each quilt you are planning.
If you don’t know where to begin the quilting process, consult the Quilting Roadmap!
If you aren’t sure what motifs to choose, narrow the focus with the Design Worksheet!
And check your progress with The Final Evaluation (not a test, but a way to make constant, steady improvement with your quilting!)
CHOOSE THE BEST APPROACH FOR EACH QUILT
The class begins by choosing an “Approach to Quilting” for every quilt–Basic (simple outlining of blocks), All Over (one or two? motifs!) or Custom (a design plan for each area of the quilt)
Not every quilt needs custom quilting, so we look at easy ways to make Basic and All Over quilting more interesting.
CHOOSE BATTING, THREAD AND MOTIFS
We also discuss how batting, thread and motifs work together to create the look and feel of your quilt.
And we look at how to quilt a variety of quilt styles including embroidered, appliqué and quilts with a lot of negative space.
Learn about stabilizing, machine guided outlining, free motion outlining, how to cut the bobbin thread when tying, and much, much more!
WHAT YOU WON’T SEE…
This class does not include a lot of doodling or stitching of quilt motifs. If you are looking for quilt motifs, try my other two Craftsy classes (50% 0ff this week!)
And you won’t learn what motifs to choose for YOUR quilts–only YOU can choose…but WE WILL help YOU think about the process and help YOU decide the best motifs for YOUR quilts based on your skill level, the time available and who the quilt is for!
A QUICK JUMPSTART
If you are looking for a quick jumpstart to get you rolling on quilting YOUR UFOs and turning them into family heirlooms–this class is for YOU!
This class is less than one hour!!! YOU can learn so much in ONE HOUR!!!
Once YOU start quilting, YOUR own ideas will percolate and YOU will be the designer!
So, as they say at Craftsy...”Let’s Get Started!”
May ALL YOUR quilts be heirlooms!
