This is an applique quilt project. You will learn to work with fusible web, get a few tips for success at the same time. This is a fun project, a great play day of working with colour

SUCCESSFUL FREE MOTION QUILTING
This class is for the following types of quilters:
I have never free motion quilted, ever
I have tried a few times, but no success
I have taken a Free Motion Class, but lack confidence to tackle a special quilt
I am self-taught, need a few pointers
I can free motion quilt but am not satisfied with some of my results
I want to build confidence
This class starts at the beginning, assuming you know nothing about free motion quilting. There are many tips for successful free motion quilting. Combine all the tips you have learned at the same time, voila! = SUCCESSFUL FREE MOTION QUILTING!
