Welcome to our Intro Free Motion Quilting series! We are so excited about this course so we can help give you the confidence to finish your quilts yourself on your home sewing machine or longarm.
Today we are working on changing scale with the loopy meander. Changing scale is one of the easiest ways to change the look of your quilting, and determine how long it is going to take you to actually quilt it.
Whenever I have a whimsical print and very little time to quilt it, you better believe I’m breaking out a medium scale loopy meander to get the job done in a couple hours on my longarm.
But there are lots of instances too when I go for the small scale version in the background or skinny borders, or just to make a quilt look a little fancier by going small with the quilting stitch scale.
If you haven’t watched our intro videos on the supplies you’ll need and how to use your stencils and Pounce Pad, make sure you watch those first on our class page: https://www.quiltaddictsanonymous.com/intro-to-free-motion-quilting/
We have created four reorderable quilt kits using solid fabrics from Northcott Colorworks. The richly colored fabrics are fabulous to work with, and it will make it very easy to see your stitches and make your stitching the star or the show.
Make sure you grab a stencil kit, which contains the four stencils and pounce pad we are using to learn the four basic stitches. And grab the quilt pattern, which is FREE with the purchase of any Free Motion Quilting Kit.
