The Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along with Angela Walters
We all know that it takes practice to get better at free-motion quilting. But practice is so much more fun when you are doing it with friends. Now you can improve your quilting skill and cheer each other on! Join me for my first ever Machine Quilting Along!
Starting February 12th, quilt along with me as we work though an actual quilt top! You will improve your quilting skill as well as earn the chance to win all sorts of prizes.
Here’s how to get started!
The Free-motion Challenge is free! Sign up to receive Quilting Along quilting diagrams and videos directly to your email inbox by clicking here: http://eepurl.com/di9eIX
Get Ready to Practice
To practice machine quilting, you have to have something to practice on! If you want to work on the same quilt as I do, you can download the free pattern by clicking here or you can get the kit which includes the fabric to make the top and binding.
Or you can practice along on plain fabric! Ultimately it doesn’t matter as long as you have something to practice on. Prepare your quilt sandwich using the basting method that you prefer and get ready to practice!
While not required, you can join the Facebook group. This is a great place to ask questions, post pictures and stay up-to-date on the quilting along! Click here to join.
Watch the Videos
Every week, I will release a video tutorial showing you how to quilt two of the squares in the quilt. Each video will include 2 different quilting options, try them both or just try one, it’s up to you!
After the video is released, try practicing the design. Once you’re finished, post a picture of it on social media using the #fmqchallenge.
Every week, I will select winners from pictures posted on social media. Consider it a bonus for practicing!
I can’t wait!!! The first video will be coming to on February 12th…..will you be quilting along with me?
What does it cost to participate?
Nothing, Nada, Zilch. There is no fee to quilt along with me and there are no required products.
Do I have to make the quilt top to participate?
No! If you don’t have the time or inclination to make a quilt top, all you have to do is prepare a small quilt sandwich. You just need something to practice on.
Does it matter what kind of machine I use for the Quilting Along?
Definitely not! I will be filming videos on my home sewing machine, but the designs that I show can be done on any kind machine. Just use what you got and join along!
What kind of machine quilting designs will we be working on?
I have tried my best to include a range of designs and techniques. The schedule is below, it will give you an idea of what we will be practicing.
How will I get the videos?
The weekly videos will be free on my YouTube channel, subscribe so you don’t miss them! Or to get the videos and tips sent to your email inbox directly, sign up for the newsletter by clicking here. The videos, as well as tips or any other pointers, will be emailed to you as soon as they are posted.
