Learn Machine Quilting Designs with Leah Day | How to Do Hand Embroidery with Laura Gaskin
(Show 1712) Leah Day began free motion quilting a decade ago, and has spent a lot of hours making it look easy. Her ease and fluidity did not come naturally, but she certainly makes it look as if she was born to quilt! Leah shares her journey from novice quilter to the stunning patterns she produces today. Her online teaching via her blog outlines how to get started with simple designs, how to move to more complicated patterns, and when to set aside a design that isn't working. She discusses the process start to finish, from sketching ideas on paper to hiding threads at the end. Afterwards, Laura Gaskin demonstrates her amazing and intricate embroidery pieces, many of which are inspired by nature. Laura does all her embroidery by hand, then finishes many pieces with a fabric border.
