Machine Quilting workshop by Elaine Quehl

Elaine Quehl taught a workshop on free motion quilting today and 18 ladies took advantage of the class to practise our skills.  We learned that we must doodle, doodle, doodle and practise, practise, practice.  We were able to try a lot of different threads and picked up tips and helpful advice from Elaine.  She was very encouraging and kept us going with a new sheet of motifs to practise regularly throughout the day.

Doodle your designs Ladies!

Practise, practise, practise!!
 Look at the concentration as these ladies practise their next motifs!

 Elaine demonstrated the various techniques on different machines during the day.  Rose got to take the sandwich sample home because it was her birthday.

 Some of us needed a little help reaching the pedals of our machines :-)

A lovely motif!  If we keep practicing, we will be able to quilt like this as well.

More photos of the day can be viewed here

Elaine also blogged on her own site which can be read here.
