Use linear designs like matchstick quilting, as well as grid and crosshatch quilting to sew textures that look and feel wonderful. Quilt lines that radiate and overlap to produce numerous shapes and infinite interest. Accentuate your piecing with gorgeous gentle curves, flower-like continuous curves and more. Frame a focal point with spirals, create a ripple effect with concentric circles and play off of your pieced shapes by “echoing in.” Plus, learn to quilt eye-catching text, and discover tips for quilting larger projects on a small machine. Quilt your projects with fresh walking foot designs for a finish you’ll admire.

Meet your instructor, Jacquie Gering. You’ll take an in-depth look into how the walking foot functions and adds more accuracy and efficiency to your quilting. Next, you’ll learn excellent tips for setting up your machine, explore basting options and learn new marking techniques.
Walking Foot Basics (39:18)
Jacquie discusses threads and the importance of establishing a baseline for your quilting. Try your hand at matchstick and grid quilting, using your baseline and a registration line to get perfectly straight, evenly spaced stitching.
Decorative Stitches (27:39)
With Jacquie’s example quilts for inspiration, dive into the decorative serpentine, diamond serpentine and scallop stitches. Let your pieced quilt top guide your choice! If you run into trouble, such as a broken thread, Jacquie shows you how to recover.
Radiating Designs (18:27)
Stunning radiating designs begin with a single focal point from which your quilting lines flare out like the sun’s rays. Add another focal point and overlapping stitches to create intriguing geometry. Jacquie walks you step by step through marking and stitching these designs.
Quilting Curvess (27:00)
Teach your walking foot new tricks with curvy quilting! Jacquie displays some delightful examples and walks you through the process of quilting both continuous and sectioned curves.
Turning Designs (29:32)
Add focus to your quilts with turning designs that echo or spiral out from a central point. Learn how to mark, then stitch these curves, or try your hand at a linear echo-in design.
Quilting Text (21:22)
Make positive use of negative space by quilting letters, symbols or other shapes into your quilt. Closely-spaced quilting lines approach but do not cross the shape you want to define, making it pop! Jacquie shows you how to master this fun technique.
Quilting Strategies (25:53)
Once you’ve practiced on smaller pieces, it’s time to try quilting a larger project – maybe a pieced top you’ve been waiting to quilt with just the right design! Jacquie shares strategies for supporting and manipulating the bulk of a large quilt through a domestic sewing machine, how to quickly remove stitches if you need to and how to finally quilt your project as you desire!
