Free Motion Improv
Half-Day Workshop
4 pm - 7 pm PST, Thursday, October 15

$80 workshop fee includes $25 class kit

Liberate yourself from traditional quilting symmetry by mashing up your favorite motifs in a seemingly random way. Combine basic shapes with transitional designs and free-motion fillers to add amazing texture to the negative spaces in your quilts, or create your own unique work of improvisational art.

Note: Students should be comfortable with basic free-motion quilting.

The kit fee includes one of Christa’s Machine Quilting Books that students can choose from.  Please indicate book choice in notes section when registering.
All Levels

Class Kit includes one of Christa’s Books. Students can choose between Machine Quilting with Style, The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting, or Piece and Quilt with Precuts. $25 class kit included in workshop fee. Please indicate book choice in notes section when registering.

Students to Provide

  • 6 practice quilt sandwiches consisting of two large squares of solid or tonal colored fabric basted together with batting in between; I recommend at least 10” for the top square, 11” for the batting, and 11” or more for the bottom square of each “sandwich.” For variety, you may substitute single quilt blocks in any size, or printed fabric for a few of the practice squares. Baste using basting spray or pins and do NOT stitch around the edges.
  • Thread to match your fabrics. I recommend Aurifil 100% cotton, 50 weight.
  • Extra bobbins, thread snips.
  • Sketchbook and pen or pencil for note-taking and FMQ sketching
  • New machine needle: I recommend size 80/12 Topstitch from Superior to go with 50 weight cotton thread. These are available from shop.ChristaQuilts.com
  • Sewing machine in good working order
  • Free motion foot to fit your machine; practice attaching before class begins.
  • A “can-do” attitude – this is going to be fun!
