Sweet Pea Designer Cathedral Windows: Machine Embroidered Quilt



Have you been interested in machine embroidery but didn’t know where to start, or maybe you have an embroidery machine but would like to build more confidence in how to use it?  Here’s a fantastic opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind quilt by “quilting as you go in the hoop” using either your embroidery machine or one of ours!  By the time this course is completed, your comfort level with embroidery machines will have increased significantly and you will have a beautiful embroidered heirloom quilt.

Join us in this 8-class course to create this stunning machine-embroidered quilt from Sweet Pea. You’ll learn how to quilt the blocks and borders right in the hoop using applique and other specialized techniques. You’ll learn how to load multiple files, create two blocks at a time, and perfect the art of machine embroidery!
