Ghost Quilting Workshop Class at MQA

We had a great time at the MQA Workshop Gathering, and the Ghost Quilting class was a great learning experience. The participants came with their "focus fabric" square or rectangle fused to the background and layered with batting and backing. I demonstrated the use of the Caran d'Ache water soluble wax pastels for those who wanted to add color to their pieces. Some did this, and some drew a few guidelines out in the background to help know where to quilt. We identified what were tension problems and what were speed problems and we found the right speed and sound for their machine to be stitching best. Quilting gloves helped move the fabric for smooth stitches. We got right to the quilting and by the end of class everyone had a nearly finished piece.
