On Saturday, May 6th, we drove to our class through the heavy downpour of rain. It was a perfect day to be inside doing a workshop.
Our teacher, Katrina Kahn, was very energetic and knowledgeable about free motion quilting. We heard words like: shoulders down, breathe, practise, practise, practise repeated many times as we made our wavy lines, our e's and l's, pebbles (2 different ways), 1, 2, 3 teardrops, figure 8s, and ribbon candy.
We were able to see how free motion quilting left the quilts and tablerunners soft and flexible. The workshop had us eager to try out samples and to come home to practise.
Katrina's samples are pictured below.
