    If you are the type of machine quilter who strives for perfection yet cannot take the time to create fine designs, look to the wonderful pattern flexibility of the Terry Twist to give you the flawless results you want.

     Even if we practiced, practiced, practiced we are not computers, so take advantage of this smart asymmetrical continuous-line technique. It delivers just the right block, border, and sashing designs from half inch to large overall designs effortlessly.

     Because it is free-motion friendly your bobbles and wobbles disappear. The eye will never catch them, as you use this one simple shape to create endless designs. You can stitch charming patterns by adding your favorite “go to” shapes including feathers, leaves, flowers and more or simple textures for quick work of large areas.

    There is no doubt that feathers define the quilt top and feathering defines the quilter.  We will learn to make the feather on straight spines, undulating spines, and using a feather stencil.

    After this class you will be able to look at an area and know that the feathers will fit the area, coordinate with the quilt top and other patterns used. Plus have the confidence in your new practiced skill with Sally's effortless and clever technique. (This is Sally's No. 1 Class)

    10am meeting

    Let me be your guide on a walk through historical, political, and personal events that have inspired generations of quilters. In my presentation I reflect on quilters work and how they find inspiration to create, to express, and to mark milestones in their lives. The program is full of historical information as well as touching personal stories that many quilters can relate to. I bring along a large collection of quilts (over 50) that will entertain and inspire your members. I hope to inspire you with many reasons to continue to create and enjoy quilting even more than you do now.
