3 different designs to machine quilt with WonderFil Master Quilter thread

On yesterday’s QUILTsocial, I talked about machine quilting hearts with WonderFil’s Tutti thread and I’m really happy with how the pink variegated thread looks on my Valentine’s Day tablerunner. Today, I’ve threaded my Gammill with something new! I’m going to use 3 different designs to machine quilt three small tablerunners that have been in my UFO pile for quite some time using Master Quilter thread from WonderFil.

Longarm-Master Quilter™

This 40wt 3ply polyester thread is designed just for the longarm. Soft and supple to the touch, completely lintless with a cotton sheen, and crafted for high-speed machine quilting and multi-directional sewing, Master Quilter is ideal for the longarm, midarm, and domestic sewing machines and gives a perfect stitch quality even at high speeds. We recommend teaming it up with DecoBob in the bobbin for the ultimate quilting experience. Available in 72 solid colors on large cones.

Two of the little tableunners that I’m going to quilt today were made from blocks that were left over from projects that Nellie and I made for our book “Celebrate Canada”. We used Northcott’s Oh Canada line of fabric for all of the samples in the book. The nice thing about this line of fabrics is that Northcott adds new designs to it every year, but they keep the colors constant – this way the fabrics from different years can be mixed successfully!

Hearts and leaves

The heart designs that we used yesterday are very versatile on their own and even more so when they are turned into leaves!! I use leaf designs A LOT when I’m machine quilting. They can be used in borders, in blocks or as an overall design that travels from edge to edge across the quilt. Here’s a video showing how I use leaf motifs combined with swirls and loops.

Fun spirals

Here’s a super fun design that I just learned this summer and have used lots of times since. It’s great for kids quilts and modern quilts and is really easy to do. A circular spiral design is quilted and then a straight line travels to the center of the next spiral. You can make the spirals any size depending on the place you need to put them.

Here’s another fun design that can be used for winter themed quilts. I had this little Christmas table runner in my UFO pile and since I was enjoying using the Master Quilter thread so much, I decided to pop it on the frame and finish it as well. Check out this video showing how to machine quilt snowflakes in a border.

So, there you have it – 3 different designs to machine quilt with Master Quilter thread. My longarm sewing machine seemed to LOVE this thread and so did I!!

I loved Master Quilter thread for its elegant sheen and even stitch in high speeds and multi-directional stitching. Tomorrow I’m putting another UFO on the machine and I’m going to experiment with another one of WonderFil’s great threads!
