Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials–YOUR place for step by step, free motion quilting tutorials...
Today we’re taking a page from hand embroidery and stitching the Chain Stitch. It’s a beautiful hand stitch, but it’s even better in free motion quilting!Wouldn’t this be beautiful on the bottom of a skirt? Or on the borders of a tablecloth? Perhaps on a pillowcase. Be creative! Once you’ve learned a motif, find as many uses for it as you can!
Don’t limit your free motion quilting to quilts!
THE CHAIN STITCH FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing a line to follow. The line can be straight or wavy–or spiraled into a circle. Doodle first and you might be surprised…
We’re stitching some REALLY COOL variations of this motif next week. Stay tuned…
NOTE-This tutorial was stitched on my Really Cool BERNINA 770 QE– A great machine with a beautiful stitch, huge bobbin, buttons to lower and lift the needle and so much more! (While sitting in the Really Comfy-BERNINA chair–available at dealerships everywhere- or SeBear Patch Quilting Co in Minnesota.
I used Sulky 40 wt Rayon on top and Aurifil 50 wt cotton in the bobbin, Warm and Natural cotton batting.
Hope YOUR stitches are Happy,
