I’m very excited about next week’s posts! Written by quilter Julie Plotniko, you don’t want to miss her tutorial on wholecloth walking foot quilting.
The definition of a wholecloth quilt is a quilt made of a single length of extra-wide fabric. The quilting stitches themselves form the design of the quilt.
I’ve loved the look of wholecloth quilting before I ever knew the name of this technique. It’s the kind of quilting where the quilting is the star of the show, without being muffled by color and patterns. I love the texture the thread creates.
A star at teaching the many facets of the exciting world of quilting, Julie will walk us through the supplies, how to prepare the fabric, and explaining what a walking foot is and how to thread the machine for successful quilting, and so much more.
If you want a head start and follow along, here are the supplies you’ll need to be ready.
You’ll also need a walking foot. Julie explains, “The best thing about walking foot quilting is that the sewing machine controls the stitch length and the walking foot helps feed the fabric.” Don’t miss her awesome tutorial about it.
Here’s a sneak peek of the early stages of wholecloth walking foot quilt sample.
The adventure starts Monday May 13! Join us!
The walking foot makes a big difference to quilting. No more puckering and you get such a neat stitch.
