While I have no interest in doing free motion quilting, I would like to learn some techniques using the walking foot for small projects like wall hangings.

Marilyn Robichaud,

I do stippling and stitch in the ditch and hand quilting. I am very interested in learning some new techniques. I didn't know how to jump from one position to the other the way you did in the video and the bubble stitching is great so I am going to try this!


Thanks I am going to have to try the bubble stitching looks fun. I just hope I can get my circles to be circles!

When you "jump" while FMQ, how do you handle the thread (tails) -- as they would be very short to try to bury.

I would like to see more on how to determine what to quilt where and how much. I usually don't FMQ over my appliques, just outline them and then do a filler. But not very good at choosing which filler to use. PS I am a newbie to FMQ
