Frieda’s award winning quilts have been in many magazine articles and books. Even a beginner quilter can easily make her own quilted designs without marking or using templates.  With the sewing machine used as a drawing tool, learn to handle the quilt sandwich with confidence as Frieda leads you through a series of fun exercises.  Each exercise carries you along step by step, helping you develop your own style and expertise.  The result:  you’ll enjoy your free motion quilting with confidence.   Workshop includes discussion of needles and threads, and how to make complex free motion patterns from simple designs.
