Free Motion Design School

In this online course, you’ll go from feeling fearful and confused about free-motion quilting to feeling confident and secure knowing you can finish your quilts – by yourself – on your home machine!.

An Introduction.

Hi, my name is Mary Davis, and I am Mary Go Round Quilts.  I have been quilting for 25 years, and still going strong.  I started the Free Motion Design School because I want to accomplish two things:

  • First, to provide a platform where you can learn how to free motion quilt in a virtual classroom setting, at your own pace.

  • Second, I love free motion quilting, and I want to share what I’ve learned throughout the years with you, so that you can become a more confident free motion quilter.
