Machine Quilting Monday

on January 4, 2016

Want to learn a new motif?  Want to improve or be brave enough to try Free Motion?  My Monday blog is devoted to Machine Quilting, mostly Free Motion.  It’s a technique I am constantly trying to improve.  Have you tried a stitch regulator?  Did you like it?  I tried it, don’t like it at all.  It’s like I have a ball and chain around my foot.  IMHO people put too much emphasis on PERFECT.

So, if you are looking for someone to help you quilt perfectly, (grinning) look else where.  My philosophy is to look at your work from a galloping horse.

Where to start?  When I took my first free motion class, I learned to meander, first.  Quilting in a wandering path without crossing any stitched lines.  I was overwhelmed.  Not crossing a line, seemed to be a challenge for me.  The easiest motif for me is the cursive capital letter “L”.  Click on this LINK to see the video.

Next week I’ll show you 4 more.  The videos will get better, or else I will just take pictures of the process….
