Deciding what quilting to put where and why, can be a daunting task. But it doesn't need to be. Looking at other quilts to see how other quilt makers decided how to quilt their quilts can be a great education. In my workshop A Fine Line we brainstorm how to quilt all the quilts in the room.

Questions By Hand or Machine?
Quilts use?Answers to these all important questions will start you on the road to choosing designs that are fun to quilt, exciting to stitch and successful no matter your skill level!
|This design fill the space nicely,the straight||lines complement the quilt.|

Most important of all have fun with your stitching!
For a hands on experience, I'm teaching a workshop at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, called A Fine Line.
