Quilting With Your Walking Foot (25:52)
Meet Christa Watson and get started by learning how the walking foot, or integrated dual feed, works on your domestic machine. Practice quilting wavy lines as you discover the best way to travel around your quilt, minimizing turning it and maximizing efficient stitching.

More Walking Foot Designs (26:31)
Follow along as Christa demonstrates her favorite walking foot designs. See how much impact you can make with straight lines and decorative stitches, then travel in circles or squares as you learn an all-over spiral design.

Quilting With Free Motion (21:27)
Explore free-motion quilting. Find out how your stitching path changes with free motion that allows you to move in any direction. Christa shares an all-over loop design that’s easier than stippling, and how to efficiently travel around your quilt.

No-Mark Designs (23:47)
See how to comfortably stitch several versatile free-motion designs and variations, including boxes, switchbacks, swirls and more.

Free-Motion Combinations (23:02)
In this lesson you’ll build on your free-motion skills and combine multiple motifs in the same design. Practice swirl combinations, woodgrain textures, and improvisational free motion as you feature the best elements of each!

Combining Walking Foot & Free-Motion Quilting (18:55)
Wrap things up by putting your quilt together. See why and how to combine walking foot and free motion for truly custom quilting. Christa breaks the quilting process down for stunning results every time, no matter how large the project.
