Creative Quilting with a Walking Foot
Want to quilt your quilts on your home machine and maybe free motion quilting isn’t for you? Come discover the joy and creative possibilities of quilting with your walking foot. Linear quilting has a long history and is making a comeback in both modern and traditional quilts. Learn tips and tricks for successful quilting with your walking foot along with innovative quilting designs that can be accomplished on your home machine.
7 Hour Class (includes one hour for lunch) – DOMESTIC SEWING MACHINE CLASS
June 16, 2021 – 8:00am
Student Capacity: 20
- Bernina sewing machines will be provided for students by Quilters HQ.
- Pillow or chair pad to help you be at the right height for quilting. Chairs at workshop venues can be very low. (Recommended)
- Quilting gloves (optional)
- Hem gauge or small ruler
- 6″ x 24″ acrylic ruler
- Fabric safe marker that contrasts with your sample sandwiche
- Sketchbook or notebook and pencil
- Practice quilt sandwiches should be whole cloth and solid fabrics.
- (4) 12″ x 18″ prepared quilt sandwiches for practice (top, batting, and backing)
- (2) 18″ x 18″ prepared quilt sandwiches for practice (top, batting, and backing)
- I recommend low loft cotton batting. You can spray baste (recommended) or pin baste your prepared quilt sandwiches but they need to be basted and ready to quilt. Spray basted quilt sandwiches will be easier to mark and are recommended.
Optional but recommended:
- 1 finished unquilted quilt top (We’ll use this top to talk together about how to quilt our quilts with designs we can accomplish with our walking foot.)
