Start by creating the Lotsa Dots! quilt. Kimberly will help you use the GO! Fabric Cutter to cut flawless pieces for your project, before you see how to adhere perfect circles to your background fabric with fusible web. Get the best tips for stabilizing your fabric, using special twin-needle appliqué techniques to add pizazz to your work, and removing stabilizer without distorting your stitches. Then, Kimberly will take you step by step through assembling and finishing your gorgeous Lotsa Dots! quilt.
Next, make a personalized sewing machine cover project you can finish in an afternoon! Kimberly will show you how to customize the cover to fit your machine, make fun appliqué shapes quickly with the GO! Fabric Cutter, and create super-cute side ties for the project. You'll also learn to stitch around points and curves with ease as you embellish your project with complex appliqué shapes.
Move on to creating the Good Morning Sunshine quilt. You'll begin by cutting out background fabric squares. Then, use the GO! Fabric Cutter to make customized Dresden wedge shapes, and create perfect points on your wedges. Kimberly will also teach you how to sew your Dresden wedges into perfect units, attach your Dresden plates to your background fabric and secure them with tiny appliqué stitches.
Last but not least, learn Kimberly's signature stitch-stacking technique as you work on your Good Morning Sunshine quilt. You'll create layers of different stitches and thread colors to bring eye-catching textures and interest to your appliqué! Kimberly will also cover how to assemble the Good Morning Sunshine quilt in a variety of different layouts, and talk about some beautiful options for quilting your project.
With Kimberly's online Craftsy class, you'll receive instant access to her lessons, which you can watch any time and as many times as you want — forever! You can even ask Kimberly and your classmates quilting questions, so you're always just a click away from answers.
