We are so excited to host international award winning quilter Claudia Pfeil for a (P)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 wholecloth quilt, and Claudia’s signature (p)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 Claudia Pfeil (P)Fantastic Adventure will take place May 11-12, 9:00am- 5:00pm each day, at Quilted Joy. This two day event is $250 and a deli lunch will be provided (please let us know if you have special dietary needs). Click here for Quilted Joy’s address and nearby hotels.

These classes are part of a two day workshop. Students will attend all the classes listed below over the two day event. Each day will be 9:00am-5:00pm and a deli lunch will be provided both days.
A supply list is on it’s way, and we’ll send it out to all of our registered students as soon as possible! We know you’ll definitely want to bring pencil, eraser, pen, a straight ruler, and a sketchbook.
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!
(P)Fun Pfeiling (P)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!
