Quilting Beyond the Design
- Oct 06, 2019 02:00 pm

Begin with a basic design from a stencil, a ruler or template, an applique, a fabric print, a cookie cutter or a shape you draw yourself. Then, learn to transform that design from basic to spectacular by extending, expanding, and adding secondary designs, repeats, fills and special effects. Learn marking techniques and tools for applying designs to quilt tops.

Creating beautiful custom quilts isn't just about dropping block designs in the center of you quilt; it's about completing beautiful borders to surround those blocks. True HQ Pro-Stitcher has over 30 border and corner sets included in the system, but the fun doesn't stop there, Handi Quilter National Educator, Diane Henry, will also teach you quick and easy border ideas using pantos, blocks, and triangle designs, and HQ Pro-Stitcher features like Mark, Crop, and Record. For advanced beginner and up levels of experience.
