Clear Blue Tiles with Michelle

Tired of waiting on projects to be quilted?  It is time to take those projects to the finish line, on your embroidery machine, with Clear Blue Tiles (CBT)!

Up your game using Clear Blue Tiles on your embroidery machine!  Is there a table runner or small wall hanging you REALLY want finished and expand your capability of quilting inside your embroidery hoop?  Bring your project, drop it in the hoop and let’s finish it!  Clear Blue Tiles makes your quilting life easier as all designs fit into most typical size blocks and borders we piece.

This class will teach you

  • How to identify which CBT size and design to use for a block or a border
  • Upload designs to your machine
  • Hoop Placement
  • Overall Quilting Design Strategy

No matter what size hoop you have, you DO NEED the Essentials Set in order to receive the designs, user guide, pens and slap bands.  There is a bonus table runner program included.
