This Tip Saves Time and Goes More Smoothly!

Do you dread machine quilting those long border strips? Whether you’re doing straight line quilting with your walking foot or free motion quilting, it can be a hassle to continually have to reposition the entire quilt while working your way down borders.

Angela Walters has a great solution – quilt the border in chunks. That way you can quilt the borders along with the rest of the quilt as you’re working your way out from the center.

The following video shows how that works. While Angela is using a sit-down quilting machine, the same idea will work with your home machine.

She also demonstrates a simple feather design that looks great and works nicely with her method of doing borders.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
