If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to machine quilt your quilt look no further. Laura from Sew Very Easy has developed a method that is virtually foolproof.
She starts with fusible batting to hold the layers together, then shows how to mark a grid of quilting lines. She uses her walking foot and a serpentine stitch for the quilting itself.
This stitch is very forgiving, which makes it virtually unnoticeable if you get a bit off track while stitching. Plus, it produces a lovely all-over effect that will work nicely with many quilt styles.
However, if you prefer straight stitching lines, follow Laura’s method but go ahead and use a straight stitch instead.
Watch the video below to see how the process works. Laura provides many tips to make it virtually foolproof.

Keep in mind that while Laura created a 4″ grid, you can space yours however you wish. Just make sure it’s small enough to meet the spacing requirements of your batting (it will say on the label).
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!
