Meet your instructor Christina and start by creating a grid for your quilt to use as a guide for free-motion quilting. Using a ruler and a walking foot, Christina shows you step by step how to make a basic and an on-point grid. Then, see how to split your grids to form even more fun shapes!
Diamond Grids (18:50)
Next, expand your quilting horizons by learning how to quilt diamond-based grids. Find out how to make and measure evenly spaced lines as you explore diamonds, triangles and radiant grids all with your walking foot.
Working Inside the Grid (23:54)
Ready for some quilting magic? Discover how to use your walking foot to emphasize the quilt grid with flanked lines. After that, see how simple free-motion fills like arcs and loops really bring the quilting to life. Plus, Christina shares tips for efficient traveling so you can easily quilt large sections without getting stuck.
Filling Spaces (23:37)
Next, add texture to your grid with easy fillers. Christina demos how to create a checkerboard effect with back-and-forth lines, then steps it up a notch with Lazy-Eights. She also shows you how to free-motion quilt straight lines for an effect she calls “prism quilting”.
Circular & Spiral Fillers (18:21)
Then, quilt out of the box with fun curved fillers that nearly hide the original grid. See how spirals, circles and ovals add wonderful texture to your quilt. Plus, learn what to quilt in the negative space that surrounds these fillers.
Complex Grid Fillers (30:38)
Wrap things up by exploring more variations for filling the grid. See how combining motifs and fillers gives you endless quilting choices. Afterwards, Christina demos some of her favorites, including loops, seagulls, florals and more – you can easily achieve them all by quilting the grid one section at a time.
