Quilting Out of the Ditch: Machine Quilting With the Walking Foot
Time & Location
About the Event
The Even Feed or Walking Foot is probably the most unappreciated of the sewing machine’s attachments. We tend to think of it only for straight line or in-the-ditch quilting motifs. This workshop will help you avoid the “straight (and narrow)” and get you out of the ditch (or rut) and explore other motifs. Gentle curves such as the Baptist Fan motif and similar shapes can be easily and quickly quilted with this essential attachment. Students will work on an approximate 45” x 50” pre-basted quilt using the Baptist Fan stencil from the Stencil Company. Other curved motifs will be shown in class to indicate the versatility of using the walking foot for other quilting motifs.
A kit fee is $45 and includes the following: 1. Pre-basted quilt with binding. (Quilt is approximately 42”x54”-60”) An assortment of colors and patterns are available. 2. Stencil 3. Marking pencil 4. Spiral-eye needle 5. Matching thread. The use of a “pounce” type marker containing “Miracle Chalk” will be available for use in class. Other necessary notions are provided in the class.
Sewing Machines, Irons, Rotary cutters and mats will be provided.
