Make It Your Way! Quilt Along: Lesson 12 of 12

McCall's Quilt Along: Make It Your Way! | Episode 12

Join McCall’s Quilting associate editor Sherri Bain Driver and web editor Valerie Uland as they show you how to machine quilt. In this final episode, you’ll get a closer look at the machine quilting designs in the sample quilt, and watch a demo of free-hand (no marking), free-motion (no feed dogs) machine quilting. Learn tips for starting, stopping, and achieving consistent stitches and motifs. Share your fabric selection, block and quilt pictures on Instagram @mccallsquilting #MIYWQA.
