Exploring with Machine Quilting Session 2: Full Frontal Flowers

In this session I will use drawings and stitch outs to introduce flowers that have a variety of different petal shapes and center styles. I will show students how “full frontal facing” flowers fit inside a doughnut and how to use this idea to practice drawing flowers. I will introduce the idea muscle memory with body movement and paying attention to that movement while doodling so that the same movement can be utilized while quilting. Then I will redraw each flower showing the movement and stitch order of creating each one. I will then stitch out several different flowers, complete an all over flower stitch out and a border with flowers and leaves.
