Figgy Pudding Layout Decisions










I finally picked a layout and sewed it together!

Also, I have no idea how I'm going to quilt it. I always hand quilt, in the ditch or outline, but I think I'm ready to branch out of that. I'd love your suggestions!

P.S. I'm completely in love with Moda

  1. Hi Lauren, thanks for commenting on my quilt entry!
    OhFransson has an awesome tutorial on free motion you can find here...

    also, CrazyMomQuilts has a video of free motion quilting in action, found here...

    I do the following: using a darning foot, lower your feed dogs, turn tension up to 4-5, length to 0 and width to 4. I'm sure the numbers can vary depending on machine. The trick for me was remembering to move your hands slower than your pedal speed to keep the stitch nice.

    Hope any of that helps! I'm still pretty new to this! =)

  3. Have you seen Leah's blog
    about Free Motion quilting
    365 days - she has videos
    for the designs.
    I'm sure you can find a
    design there that you could
    use.
