I'm still pretty new to long-arm quilting and quite honestly, this is a question I keep asking myself when I look at this current quilt top:
This quilt top was made by the local Project Linus ladies & I'm completely stumped!
Serious, how do you know how to quilt a quilt sometimes??? My inexperience is showing.
My "normal" pre-quilting routine is to doodle and sketch, practicing designs from various Free Motion Quilting books and find inspiration from all your work. This is not working this time. I really am stumped! LOL! I've been looking for classes/workshops and have been seriously considering taking The Beginner's Guide to Longarm Quilting Workshop through Longarm University this summer. It's a 4-day workshop by Cindy Roth in Renton, Washington. Anybody familiar? Anybody gone?
Quite honestly, I feel like a kid learning to ride a bike. I think I'm a little afraid to take off my "training wheels" as I venture away from my safe and secure quilting pantographs and whimsical free motion. This top presents a set of new challenges for me. My creative mind knows there is potential here. I know I can do this. But, seriously, right now all's I can think is: How do I quilt this??
I'm looking forward to your input and please do share any workshops or learning opportunities you have had (or offer) that you would recommend and are located in the Pacific Northwest area.
Thanks ahead of time!
