Machine Minute - Hand Embroidered Look by Machine
Love the look of hand embroidery, but not the time it takes? Jennifer Keltner shares a great way to get the look using your sewing machine.for you. I'm going to show you how you can embroider a tea towel using just a straight stitch on your machine and a 12-weight thread. Change your needle to a 9014. That gives you a little bit bigger eye to accommodate the 12 weight. And in the bobbin, just a standard sewing thread will do. One that matches your 12-weight threat. Then draw your design onto a basic tea towel . I've got one that's got a fairly loose weave here but you could also use a flour sack . You can either use a white box or a sunny window to transfer your designer but just trace it on with some sort of air or water soluble marker. You'll want to get a piece of stabilizer to put behind your work, and that will just give it some stability.

Machine Minute - Straight Line Quilting
Straight line quilting is a great technique to learn. Jennifer Keltner gives tips to make it easy to get started with this grid design. Download the pdf here: www.allpeoplequilt.com/straightlinequiltingmore to start with. That's what we're going to talk about today. Straight line quilting is great, and often quilters learn to stitch in the ditch or in the space between the scenes of the pieces of their block. But when you're ready to move beyond that, what else can you do?. One basic design for straight line quilting is cross hatching , or diagonal lines that run parallel to one another across the quilt block or all the way across the quilt top. So in my sample here, we have nine patch blocks, and you can use this technique to diagonally stitch across a nine patch block in your quilt, or you can use it to do an entire quilt top. First and foremost, you want to get your machine set up with the very best equipment. What you start with is a walking foot. When you're doing straight line machine quilting, a walking foot will help keep the layers of your quilt, the top, the backing, and the batting together, pulling the top layer and bottom layer evenly. That's why you want to use a walking foot. So set up your machine with the walking foot, a new needle-treat yourself to a new needle, it really does make a difference. And I like to use an 8012 needle. And then, 50 weight thread is a common thread that you would use for your quilting. So get your machines set up with the walking foot, the needle and the thread
