I'm Done Piecing - Now What?



Everyone can learn something new in this basic class – whether you've only pieced quilt tops or have finished a whole stack of quilts. Prepping your quilt top properly, choosing and marking designs on your quilt, and selecting batting and backings will all be covered in this class. Threads, needles and tension and their relationship to finishing quilts will be discussed.

Topics Include:

  • Quilt top prepping and picking your backing
  • Auditioning, resizing with Quilter's Assistant Proportional Scale and applying quilt designs
  • The basics of batting & basting
  • Tackling threads, needles and tension
  • Stitch-in-the-ditch and meander quilting

Skill Details:
Instructor: Debby Brown
Instructor Bio: A seamstress from her youth, Debby transitioned into quilting while expecting her first child. Thirty years and thousands of quilts later, she is an award-winning quilter who has published quilts, patterns, articles and columns in major quilting magazines, and authored 2 books. She teaches at national and international quilting shows, has filmed HQ Sweet Sixteen? instructional DVDs and has taught multiple machine quilting classes on Craftsy. Since Debby?s relationship with Handi Quilter began a decade ago, she has owned almost every machine produced by Handi Quilter. She currently quilts using the HQ Sweet Sixteen?, the HQ Simply Sixteen?, the HQ Fusion? with Pro-Stitcher? and the entire family of HQ Stitch? machines. Debby is obsessed with the precision of ruler quilting on domestic, sit-down and longarm machines and spices up those lines with whimsical free-motion quilting that appeals to quilters of all skill levels. When not traveling to spread her fun brand of quilting, Debby creates in her studio in New York?s beautiful Hudson Valley. Debby and her husband enjoy plotting how best to spoil their grandchildren.
