Machine Quilting More Fills

Have you taken machine quilting classes but are still wanting to learn more fills and free-motion quilting patterns? If so this course is for you! We will explore even more fill designs that can be used in the background of your quilt blocks or enlarged to create an overall design. This course will expand on what we covered in the machine quilting series to add even more quilting effects to your repertoire so that you have more design options. We will cover Pebbling, various types of Echo (the variations on Echo are truly amazing), easy straight-line free-motion fills (they are easier than you think), and McTavishing and variations of each. You’ll love these new designs!
