We’re onto our 11th Make of Christmas and today is all about quilting on your home sewing machine with a walking foot.
I walk you through using fusible batting to baste your quilt top, how to divide your quilt into sections to get it tacked down with straight line quilting, and then talk you through how I divide up the quilting into sections and maneuver it on a home sewing machine.
To all of you who have been asking for me to demonstrate quilting on an actual quilt, this is your video! While I am showing you how to quilt a specific project, the Star Bright Jelly Roll Christmas Tree Skirt, these tips can work on any project you need to quilt on your home sewing machine.
So if you’re wondering just how you’re going to finish that quilt top by Christmas, grab that walking foot and some Machingers Quilting Gloves and you can get it done yourself.
