Linda Visnaw uses Cheryl Barnes’ book called the Quilting Dot to Dot, Patterns for Today’s Machine Quilter which features over 150 designs. Dots are the key to making quilts. They are everywhere you change direction in the quilting. To use, first finger trace the design to train muscle memory, next pencil trace, and then needle punch the design. For her small demonstration piece, she sandwiched backing fabric, Hobbs batting, the top fabric and the Golden Threads paper together with the design on top. It’s not about how fast you stitch or how evenly the stitches are spaced; it’s about moving the fabric.
Then watch part 3, discussing the best products to prepare for the free motion quilting process.
