Meet your instructor, stitch whisperer Angela Walters, and start class by finding the ‘dots’ on your quilt using the quilt top’s piecing. See how to stitch consistent straight lines whether you’re using a walking foot, free-motion foot or ruler foot and ruler.
Ready to try some basic dot-to-dot designs? Follow along with Angela as she stitches the simple V, triangle wedge and arrowhead in triangular shapes, showing variations along the way.
Build on the designs you learned in the previous lesson with three more motifs that are perfect for square blocks, the most common shape in quilting. Watch as Angela reveals the square spiral, double V and double diamond designs. Then she shows you where to use them on your quilt to add the most impact.
Diamonds & Hexagons (15:35)
See how to quilt diamonds and hexagons as Angela shares three designs and variations: the spin wheels, alternating V’s and tumbling diamonds. You’ll learn how to find diamond shapes in your quilt, even if it wasn’t pieced with diamonds!
Uniquely Shaped Blocks (16:07)
Discover three ways to quilt uniquely shaped blocks such as polygons. Angela then shows you how to modify your designs, stitch a shape within a shape, and combine blocks so you know what to stitch next!
Borders & Corners (21:30)
Once you’ve gotten a handle on quilting within defined areas, you’ll tackle the borders. In this lesson, see how to quilt designs in areas with more negative space. Plus learn three ways to turn the corner without losing your design flow.
Dot to Dot Around the Blocks (17:50)
Finally, think outside the piecing and find out how to use dot-to-dot designs in any style of quilt. Angela demonstrates how to use the quilting to frame blocks, create secondary patterns and use wedge shapes as fillers to quickly quilt any space efficiently.
Angela Walters, the host of our YouTube series “The Midnight Quilt Show,” is a longarm quilter, teacher and author of several books, including “Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters” and “In the Studio with Angela Walters.” Her quilting journey began with her husband’s grandfather; together they made her first quilt – a nine-patch that is still on her bed today. Thousands of swirls, feathers and parallel lines later, Angela has turned her love of stitches and fabric into a thriving business focused on modern machine quilting.
