Get Ready for Free Motion Quilting

The quilt class quilt is nearly done.  I've been machine quilting it, and I started by stitching in the ditch. Stitching in the ditch is a great way to machine quilt your quilt -- it's easy to do and can be done quickly.  I prefer to do my stitching in the ditch with a walking foot, but you can also stitch in the ditch using your free-motion foot.  More on this technique later. 

I'm going to fill each quilt block with a simple flower motif; and, after much thought and doodling, I'm going to free-motion quilt the sashing areas with a quilting design that will look great and be easy to do.  Here's the page from my sketchbook --->--->--->

Til next time - happy quilting!
