Several techniques will be taught to draw the pearls to start on one side, end on the other side, or start and end on the same side - all depending on how you are going to use the design element: as embellishment to be inserted in a design, or as part of a design, to travel from one side to another side.
Pearls are always beautiful in a quilt, so you don't want to miss this class!

Fillers - Make and Take Motifs
This class is about using the Motif Fill stitch type for longarm quilting. A couple of hundred Motif fills are included in Art and Stitch. That’s not enough - I know, so you will learn how to create your own Motif Patterns in this class. This class includes new functions introduced in Art and Stitch version 4.1. *) See NOTE below.
You can use Motifs to fill a closed shape. You can also use Motifs to fill around a closed shape. Use two motif patterns in one fill, let rows of Motifs interlock, learn how to play with multiple Motif layers perpendicular to each other and see the special effect of creating and using large motifs. Learn a trick how to fill the space between other designs that touch each other. And see how easy it is to draw Mandalas in Art and Stitch! It's as if the program was made for that purpose :)
Class SIX: US$ 56
*) NOTE: the new Motif options "Mixed Patterns" and "Flip Every Other" as shown in this class are introduced in Art and Stitch PLUS 4.1. The options will be unlocked for Art and Stitch BASE in a future update.
As many of our Art and Stitch customers already have the Embroidery Module (Art and Stitch PLUS) I decided not to wait with the release of this Class SIX until that future BASE update.
