Sketchbook Quilting is what Sarah calls her approachable, uninhibited style of free-motion quilting. Everyone will have the opportunity for hands-on time to practice transferring their sketchbook doodles to the quilt top. This class will teach and encourage you to quilt without rules. If you have a favorite stencil or ruler, feel free to bring it to class. You are welcome to bring an unquilted top to collaborate on how Sketchbook Quilting would accentuate it.
