This week on my American Patchwork & Quilting podcast, editors Linda Augsburg, Jody Sanders, and Lindsay Mayland discuss storage tips, ideas, and hacks for your sewing space. They also chat about UFOs (unfinished objects) and how you can add more finishes to your list this year with the UFO Challenge.
Then, the editors talk spring quilts and décor (we’re all ready for spring, right?) They offer perfect projects and ideas for your seasonal sewing from inside the pages of Quilts and More Spring 2017, on newsstands now!
Finally, the editors introduce the fourth annual Quilt Along. Make sure to listen in to get the details and how you can sew with us in this Block Party!
I am Super excited to share my love of the Walking Foot on my Baby Lock Destiny II. It's easy to install and easy to use... you will be quilting your own quilts in no time! And at the end, enter my giveaway!
I decided to use a soft open wave for my quilting. In the video that follows I show you how easy it is to put on the Digital Dual Feed foot (walking foot).
If you can't watch videos due to your internet connection, I shared a bit about the stitch in photos following the video.
I am using stitch 2-18 on my Destiny II, this is the default setting.
What I really love about this machine is that I can save, by stitch, 5 variations. That way I have all the ones I usually use right in memory to call up immediately. And it's VERY easy to save a custom stitch setting, just a click and done!
Here I adjusted 2-18 so that it is much more open.
This helps with the batting layer so it's not going to pull.
The two awesome features for machine quilting are
1- the large harp (throat space) which makes it so easy to quilt your own quilt. Loads of room!
2- the laser that helps me keep on track! The laser can ALSO be adjusted, sweet!
This is the laser 'on' so that I can keep going straight as I stitch.
