and then and again maybe not............................it really isn't.
You don’t need a free motion foot to quilt a quilt. You can use your walking foot and do simple quilting and it will look fabulous.
Yesterday I featured this one:
straight lines staggered over the entire quilt. It looks really good.
After I had this one up to the point of hand stitching the binding down, I worked on the partner of this quilt. Bindings are for stitch and chat days.
Once again I did straight quilting. Absolutely nothing fancy. There is no reason to stitch in the ditch! I don’t because one second of looking away and you aren’t in the ditch anymore and for once that is where you wanted to be. I took my ruler and using it as a guide, I placed the 1/2” marking on the seam. Then that wonderful masking tape came out and I ran a piece along the ruler. I did this on both sides of the seam.
I did this for every seam in the quilt in both directions. It took longer to lay down the tape than it did to sew the lines of stitching. I love how it turned it. It follows the pattern in the quilt and gives it some emphasis……
I spent one afternoon sewing it and I had it all done before supper.
The back looks great too.
Now to bind with maybe that goldie coloured fabric. I think that will look good both from the front and from the back.
