In this video Valerie shows you how you can use up large scraps of wadding and give yourself a perfect size project to practice your machine quilting skills on.
With this method of contructing your quilt you do need to pre-think a lot more – i.e. which blocks are going where and have wadding, backing and sashing strips ready – but as thin sections this quilt is easy to handle.
You can practice your free motion quilting or you could simply quilt straight lines across the block and/or simple wavy lines using the walking foot and a straight stitch.
Stitch and Thread Options
You could think about embellishing with some decorative stitches too and using some really pretty statement threads.
Helen Deighan has a neat trick for creating straight sashing with the help of an iron.
The binding had straight corners and you can see how by clicking here.
