Learn how to do free motion quilting on your home domestic machine!
Sewing machine and extension cord
Free motion quilting foot (also called a darning foot)
Basic sewing supplies
2 Fat Quarter size quilt sandwiches with one side a solid color, preferably a light color you can see pencil/pen marks on
A 9 patch 12” unfinished block, sandwiched (for continuous curve designs) with a minimum of 2" batting overage surrounding the edge of the quilt sandwich - batting should NOT be cut flush with the block as the quilting "shrinks" the batting
Contrasting thread so stitches can be seen easily on both sides
Extra sewing needles - Topstitch needles are great because they have a sharper point and an elongated eye.
Drawing paper and pen or pencil
PERMISSION TO NOT BE PERFECT (this one is important so bring extra!!)
OPTIONAL SUPPLIES - While not required, the following supplies make free motion quilting a lot easier:
Quilting gloves such as Machingers gloves
Slippery Surface such as a Supreme Slider or Sew Slip or Silicone Spray
If your sewing machine has this option, bring the sewing plate that only allows for straight stitching, not a zig zag. If this is not an option it’s not a big deal but I have found I get better results when using this plate.
