Free-Motion Quilting

Sabra Johnson of Birdseye practices her free-motion quilting skills during a quarterly sewing class at the Ferdinand Branch Library on Wednesday. Johnson has been sewing since she was 18 years old. "It's cool to see the progress," she said. "I nearly gave up on doing the geometric shapes, but I've improved a lot since my first try."


Although Johnson has been sewing since she was 18 years old, she has been quilting for less than a year. Her favorite shapes to practice are swirls, leaves and flowers.
