Our new free motion quilting pattern will be just the ticket to get some quilting projects done in a jiffy. Just in time for the holidays.
Best of all, because it’s free motion it works well with machine quilting, allowing you to work even faster!
We’ll go over what our winter holiday pattern looks like and how to get stitchin’ with it.
This pattern can be used to quilt all over your quilt or just in the precise locations like the border. It’s a perfect pattern for winter holiday motifs.
First you must have your quilting cookie assembled, before you start with the quilting stitches and where to place them.
You will want to use this pattern again and again. That is why it is best to print it out and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil. We describe how to make it here.
Adjust the pattern to the size or sizes you desire before printing it out. If you would like to use several sizes, put the image into a word program on your computer.
This allows you to make the images as many times as you’d like in the sizes you want. You can even put them all on one page to save paper. ;)
When you have completed the sizing task and your template ready, it’s time to dive into the nitty gritty.
Align your template to where you want your design to be.
Mark the template image using your favorite method. This could be fabric markers, pencils, quilt pounce, etc.
Now that the image of the pattern has been transferred to your quilt top in the section you are working, place your quilting stitches along the lines.
Then move onto the next section, then the next, and so on until all of the quilting on your top is completed.
When your quilt is quilted, bind the edges with your chosen method, and add your label or signature.
Voilà! Your quilt is a completed work of art.
Feeling extra ambitious?
Color it in.
The quilting image this is now stitched into your quilt can be filled in with color. Fabric paints work great for this. Our favorite kind to work with are Lumiere, but Folkart work alright too. Both can be found at Walmart or Joann’s.
