Walk the Walk Quilt Samples with Janet Goddard

£48

A Technique based class on the various quilting patterns you can achieve with a walking foot.

Description

Do you make patchwork quilt tops and then get stuck with the quilting? In this class we will explore the use of the walking foot for quilting, practice various techniques and make a set of samples to take home.

Please note that this is a technique class and there will be some preparation of materials needed beforehand (see ‘Requirements’ tab)

The students work to make a set of samples and here is some of their work in progress:
 
The workshop came about because I love to make quilt tops but always found that I couldn’t quilt the tops quick enough by hand and quilting in the ditch really didn’t do it for me so now all of my quilts are quilted with the walking foot in a variety of ways.

Janet has been a patchworker and quilter for several years and now designs and writes patterns for her website, magazines and books.

Requirements:

Requirements:

The requirements listed below are sufficient to make a set of eight samples

  • Eight wadded fabric “sandwiches” measuring 10” x 14” each (Each fabric sandwich needs to have a backing, wadding and light plain fabric top. The wadding needs to be fixed to the backing and top either by using a fixing spray such as 505 or with safety pins. The use of fixing spray is preferable as it makes it easy to draw the grids and quilt without moving pins. These sandwiches need to be prepared before class)
  • Cotton thread for quilting
  • Sewing machine and walking foot (essential to bring a walking foot)
  • Ruler (at least 4” x 14”)
  • Marking pen or pencil or water erasable pen that will show up on your plain fabric
  • Usual sewing equipment
  • Lunch
