Walk the Talk and Quilt It! Walking Foot Quilting Class

Saturday, September 12, 2020, 9am - 4pm
Do you find yourself asking “How Do I Quilt This”? In this presentation/trunk show and workshop, learn practical strategies for how to plan your own quilting design along with the nuts & bolts of walking foot quilting. 

The first part of this program will include a presentation and trunk show of Sheri’s award-winning quilts. She’ll describe how she decides on a quilting plan that will enhance the design of her quilt top, rather than compete with it. From there, she’ll review and demonstrate how she prepares for quilting and her tips and tricks for walking foot quilting. Following the demonstration, students will practice their walking foot quilting on small quilt sandwiches. This workshop also includes a group design discussion— a show & tell of one quilt top by each student and a conversation/consultation on how to quilt it with a walking foot. Students will walk away with skills, strategies, inspiration and confidence to complete their quilts using a walking foot.
