More Machine Quilting
Machine quilting teacher Harriet Hargrave recommends several supplies for successful machine quilting: 50-weight, three-ply sewing thread; a walking foot; .004mm nylon quilting thread; 80/12 sewing needles; and a darning foot.
Practice free-motion quilting with simple scribbles. Treat the needle as though it’s a stationary pencil and the fabric as though it’s a sheet of paper. Then try vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines.
Whether you’re working vertically, diagonally, or horizontally across the quilt top, always work on one half at a time. Start in the middle of the quilt top and work toward an edge.
