We’ve got about a month until Valentine’s Day and that means it is time to finish up all those red, white and pink quilts! We’ve got the perfect free motion quilting stitch for all your Valentine’s Day projects, the Sweetheart Meander.
This stencil and quilt design looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. When you break it down, it is essentially a series of curved swoops with lots of points for you to stop at and reassess where you are going next.
The all over design is great for Valentine’s or kids quilts. And the stencil repeat is staggered, which means when you line up all the easy to follow registration marks, no two hearts will be next to each other as you work your way across the quilt. So if you mess one up, it will be less obvious on the next pass.
In addition to going over the Sweetheart Meander, I show you how to mark your quilt top, which chalk colors are best for red and white quilts and how to use registration marks on the stencil to line your design up.
