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 going to learn how to work around your quilt block to use the stipple meander as a background filler. That’s right, there is no need to limit your stipple meander to a super huge, loose all over design!
When you use the stipple meander on a small scale as the background it really helps make the block pop, putting the focus on the piecing.
The key is learning how to move around the background so you don’t quilt yourself into a corner. We’ll show you how in today’s video.
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.
