Learn how easy and satisfying it can be to write in beautiful cursive or script on the surface of your quilts. Whether you simply want to sign your quilts in the stitching, tell your personal story or share your world view, writing on your quilts using easy to master, free motion stitching techniques will give you the opportunity to add very personal touches to your work.

In this class, quilt artist, Heather Thomas, will teach you:

  • How to determine the size, scale and spacing of your lettering.
  • How to quickly and easily determine how to fit your selected words on the surface of your quilt.
  • How to accomplish beautiful results using a four pass method that will yield “neat and tidy” results complete with tight edges, fancy little curls, areas of deep thread painting and lots more.
  • After stitching through this class with Heather, not only will you be able to write beautiful sentiments in the borders and body of your quilts, you’ll be able to stitch out beautiful monograms too.

    For any skill level and any stitcher who want to add more pizazz to their work. As a bonus you will also receive a PDF document with sample alphabet lettering for your next project using free motion script.
