Walking Foot WOW!

This past two months, I have been quilting up a storm...while using my walking foot.  Yes, I feel terribly guilty for cheating on my free motion quilting foot, but it's for a wonderful cause as I've been whipping up class samples for my new "Walking Foot WOW!" workshop.  

In this workshop, you will  create a walking foot sampler as you learn how to create beautiful, modern quilted texture--all with your walking foot!!  We'll move beyond the basic stitching in the ditch and explore decorative stitches, repeat patterns and even gentle curves to create drama and eye catching quilting designs to your unfinished quilt tops!!  In this jam-packed workshop, we'll start with some walking foot basics to set you up for quilting success, before moving onto four groupings of designs:  
  • Walk the Line (lines, stars, rays and starbursts)
  • Hot Lines (matchstick, grids and chevrons)
  • Fancy Lines (decorative stitches)
  • Spinning Lines (spirals)  

Preview of Walking Foot Possibilities!!
Now that I have piqued your interest, you are probably wondering how you can join the fun!?!  I am scheduled to teach several Walking Foot WOW! workshops/classes in the greater Bay Area, which have been posted on my calendar.  More dates/times/locations are in the works, so be sure to keep checking as I hope to see you for some Walking Foot WOW!!

  1. Love your array of samples and seeing all that can be done with a walking foot. As someone who is still only getting to grips with free motion quilting as my home machine is quite small and really does not lend itself to easily fmq on larger quilts it's always interesting to see lots of different ideas for walking foot quilting. I find that inspiration for this for this type of quilting is often very lacking when I go looking for it so it's lovely to see these ideas.

    1. Awww...thank you Paula. I wish I had known about these designs much earlier in my quilting career...as they add so much beautiful texture and aren't as intimidating to learn as free motion quilting!! I hope you can join me for one of my Walking Foot WOW! workshops.

  2. These look great! I especially love the square spirals. I'll have to show these to my son. I think he'll especially love the "fancy lines" he used some decorative stitches when he quilted Rainbow Swift.
