Today, a Free Motion Quilting Quick Tip
DON’T ROTATE YOUR QUILT
Try this little experiment…
- Begin with a small quilt sandwich.
- Choose your favorite motif. (The motif above is The Easiest Flower Ever.)
- Place the quilt sandwich on the sewing table, under the needle.
- Draw the letter “X” on the edge of the quilt that is facing your belly button.
Now stitch your favorite motif. The entire time you are stitching, the edge with the ‘X’ should remain facing your belly button.
The X will move up and down and left and right, but it should always remain facing YOU. Never rotate the quilt while you are sewing.
Later, you may need to change which side has the “X”. In that case, leave the needle in the “down” position and rotate the entire quilt. Make a new “X” and stitch away…Same rules!
After you give this a try, please let me know how it worked for YOU!
