Walking Foot Quilting – Way Beyond the Ditch
With Catherine Redford
Mar 20, 10am-12pm and 2-4pm CDT;
Mar 21, 2-4pm CDT
Learn to use your walking foot for quilting all your quilt tops on your home sewing machine. It’s easy to have good results!
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of this class for 7 days following the event.
So you’ve pieced a quilt top, now what?
It really isn’t a quilt until it has been quilted! You may have tried before and ended up frustrated, not very happy with the results…
Catherine will take you through all the necessary steps for success in using your domestic sewing machine to complete your quilts—and being happy with the result.
Her secret? Let your walking foot do the work. Working on small quilt sandwiches, you’ll try lots of different designs, starting in the infamous ditch, but leaving it far behind.
Three, 2-hour sessions means there is lots of time to try things and for Catherine to answer everybody’s questions in a fun, relaxed, non-judgemental setting.

You just need to be able to thread your machine!
