Claudia Pfeil’s Fantastic Adventure – Louisville, KY

May 11, 2018 - May 12, 2018


We are so excited to host international award winning quilter Claudia Pfeil for a Fantastic Adventure in machine quilting!

Claudia will be teaching 6 lecture and design machine quilting classes here at Quilted Joy on May 11-12, 2018.

Her classes will cover a variety of quilting techniques, like modern filler designs, designing your own whole-cloth quilt, and Claudia’s signature feathering style. All of the classes will be lecture/demo and they are designed for all skill levels for both sit down and stand up machine quilters.

The classes Claudia will be teaching during the two day event in Louisville, Ky:

Freemotion Florals

Let it flow and grow, the quilting space is the limit: create organic leaves and blossoms in a freemotion way. Claudia will also explore ways to combine them with background fills, thread painting and couching threads. You will love how you can create unique designs of your own style.

Bubbles, Curves, and Straight Lines – A Way to Modern Quilting!

We will play with an array of background fillers for use in abstract and interlocking areas. The textures give a modern touch to the quilt! Claudia will break down how to stitch these more contemporary designs and show how they can be combined with traditional designs like Pfun Pfeiling Pfeathers. The geometric motifs in the quilting draw the eye directly to the textures! It is like having a magic wand on your quilt!

Sketching with Thread

Many quilts made by Claudia feature playful elements that utilize thread painting to bring motifs to life. In this class she will show how to develop a landscape using the structure of quilting. She will show how to “draw” with the longarm so you can explore your creativity using only thread and texture!

Fun Pfeiling Feathers

The “Pfun Pfeiling Pfeather -Style” is much easier than you might think! Just try without any fear of the freemotion (P)feathers and you will be surprised about your success! So many variations are possible and they are wonderful to use in blocks and borders! Basic for all my feather classes.

Pimp My Quilt

Design, layout and different techniques: Let´s play with couching, fusing, shadowing, beading and embellishing on the Longarm! (P)Fun and creative!

Design Your Own Wholecloth

This is where it all comes together. Take everything you’ve learned and see how it can combine in ways that will make others think you are super fancy but you’ll know how easy it really was. Learn all the methods to approach whole cloth quilt design. It can be quilted later by hand or by machine – you will take your individual project home!
