FREE MOTION QUILTED CORNERS
This week, a reader asked me how to turn the corner with The Swirling Stars free motion quilt (FMQ) pattern. See the tutorial HERE.
It is very easy to turn the corner (when you are a FMQ star–Hollywood stars–not so much…)
The “first pass” of The Swirling Stars pattern is a spiral with a long tail…
To turn the corner, simply stitch a spiral in the corner ….and stitch the tail into the new direction.
Next, draw the stars…
Stitch the second and third “passes” just as you did before.
If you aren’t sure how to “bend”a pattern to turn the corner…(speaking of benders…did you read the article from Access Hollywood?…I digress)
- Stop the motif at the corner.
- Stitch a new design element in the corner.
- Then pick up your motif again.
Looks great every time!

PS…This tutorial was quilted with Sulky rayon on top and Aurifil cotton in the bobbin on my Bernina 820 without a stitch regulator.
