From the comfort of your own home, at a pace you set, and at a time that is convenient to you, take this workshop from award-winning quilter, Joanie Zeier Poole. Focus on refined free-motion techniques using your domestic sewing machine to complete your own quilts. Learn the basics of Heirloom Machine Quilting, curvilinear motifs, grids, and stippling. In the tradition of the great wholecloth quilts, transform a solid piece of fabric into a work of beauty using the graceful Ivy Wreath pattern for the 16″ x 16″ wholecloth quilt designed especially for this workshop. Information on essential supplies, machine set-up, marking the fabric, basting the layers, and how to stitch the beautiful project are all included in this easy to follow, step-by-step video. With a running time of 65 minutes, you can sit back and enjoy the DVD from either your TV or computer. The pattern, instructions and helpful stitching guides included on the DVD, can all be printed from any desktop printer.
