Walking Foot Machine Quilting Basics
I figured for our very first post for the T-shirt Quilt Along, we're going to need to knock out the basics of walking foot style quilting. The wonderful thing about this style of quilting - it's so much easier than free motion quilting! 

Click Here to read and watch a video on Walking Foot Quilting.

I honestly never thought I'd return to using my walking foot, but these days I'm really enjoying the simplicity of letting the machine do the feeding for me. It's really interesting approaching walking foot quilting from my free motion quilting design perspective and I think we're going to have a lot of fun discovering new, interesting ways to quilt!

To support this free quilt along, we've just launched a big sale in the quilt shop so you can save 15% on your order over $20 this week only:
 We could really use your support with this quilt along so take advantage of this sale and save on the materials to make your own t-shirt quilt!

Let's go quilt!

  1. Great info on quilting with the walking foot. Thank you. Will you be doing any cross hatching (think that is what it is called) with the walking foot? I have always been curious about the process. Would love to see a video on this quilting style.

    1. I've actually just posted a new video on exactly that Pat!
