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 using the simplified swirl meander as a a background filler. I did mine on a fairly small scale so it would tamp down the background so the block center will be the star of the show later.
I love using different stitches for the background filler and block filler. It really helps define your piecing and make your block shine.
I show you how to plan your path so you can work around your block without missing anything. Nobody wants to backtrack or end up with some weird stitch pattern because you skipped an entire section or didn’t plan your stitching ahead of 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.
