When you start free motion quilting, you are told to just do an all over meander, keep everything curvy and don’t overlap your lines. It sounds easy to someone who has been quilting for a while. But to a true beginner, that can be very intimidating.
In today’s tutorial I show you how to use stencils as a guide to learn and master the overall swirl. Once you have got the muscle memory down and have practiced moving throughout the quilt creating an even quilting texture, you can ditch the stencil and start getting creative.
