Machine Quilting Quick Tips

Craftsy Free Motion Quilting

Good Morning, Quilters!

Last week we worked on creating a smooth stitching line by moving one thing at a time…

Whenever you need to move your hands, stop sewing with the needle in the down position.

As you start sewing again, it can be challenging to create even stitches.  It is important to coordinate your hand movement with your foot speed.

As you resume stitching…Say out loud “R-e-a-d-y, stitch!” 

This will help your timing.

As you gain more experience, you can just say it in your head.

Later it will become part of your natural rhythm.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT:  Ready, Stitch!
