    Hi all,
    I'm new and have only made one quilt. With this quilt I did the basic "stitch in the ditch" method. I now am making another quilt and realized that I don't know how to put a design on the fabric so I can quilt it and I don't know where to get these designs. If any of you could help a newbie, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hope this helps. Here are some designs; some suitable for a walking foot and some for free motion.

    before you try ANY quilting design on your quilt PRACTICE! on a practice piece- sometimes a few 12" square sandwiches are enough to get the hang of it- sometimes it takes a little more- but don't jump right in on your actual quilt until you;ve tried your (design) on something smaller- removing lots of quilting stitches not only can take hours---but is quite frustrating-
    much better to do a couple practice pieces first.
    the practice pieces can be put to use later- as pot holders. placemats, runners- or even a raggy sampler----or quilt as you go project.
    use a contrasting thread so you can see your stitches on your first practice piece so you can tell if your tension is ok- and how even your stitches are. Practice -- you will be happy you did
