Good Morning, Quilters!
What is the BEST machine for free motion quilting? My friend, Christa Watson has a few pointers —Six Features You’ll Want for FMQ at The Craftsy Blog...
But really…features like automatic needle down and feed dogs that lower are only “nice-to-haves”.
TREADLE QUILT ARTISTRY
I recently discovered an amazing quilter, Jamala, from the Czech Republic who uses a treadle sewing machine for free motion quilting. I saw her quilts on Instagram and asked her to look at the tutorials from The Inbox Jaunt. Within a few days, she created several quilts using The Square Flower and other motifs using her treadle sewing machine!
(I like the second video best…)
While you are there, be sure to say “Nazdar! (hello). I know she will love to hear from all of us.
BTW–There is a “translate” option on the right sidebar–The translation is rather choppy, but the photos speak for themselves!
So…if you’ve been waiting to learn free motion quilting until you get that fabulous machine with all the bells and whistles…
Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
