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 stitching the double loop meander. It’s exactly what it sounds … after you stitch the first loop, you wrap around a second time to create a larger loop to encircle the first.
The key to making it look effortlessly random is to always switch between making your loops clockwise and counterclockwise. Then you can easily work your way around the entire quilt.
The effect is a very whimsical stitch that I love using on kids quilts or anything that has a fun flavor to the fabric. It is also VERY fast when you quilt it on a medium scale so you can get a top done in no time.
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.
