    Walking Foot Quilting

    A while back I read a blog someone posted a link to, 31 Days of Walking Foot Quilting. I usually just crosshatch my quilts (mainly charity quilts), but I wanted to try something different. Not working on a quilt at the time, I went out and bought a "cheater" fabric to quilt. I'm very happy with the result.

    Here's the link to the blog.

    ​Great quilt and quilting! Great site with lots of neat quilting ideas for your walking foot. For those that want to move up from SITD with the walking foot, there are some super designs to try.

    Beautiful job. Thanks for the link. Did you mark your first and what did you use for marking. Thanks.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    How very cool! I am so happy for you. I know how hard it is to try new things and you did great!

    Is that Flash Gordon??

    Looks great to me. Easy to keep the stitches more consistant. No cheater cloths to me, it is fabric and fabric is for quilting.

    Thank you all for your comments. I have a Singer 500 (hence the "King of the Rocketeers" signature) and they aren't known for being good to FMQ with, due to their horizontal bobbin. So, I'm experimenting with the walking foot. The blog shows quite a bit you can do with a walking foot.

    GagaSmith - Yes, I did mark it. I used a Frixion pen. Next to washable school glue, it's one of my favorite notions. I calculated the size of the circle/peel/seed I wanted and ended up using a paper plate as a template - it was just the right size.

    RedGarnett222 - I assume your "Flash Gordon" question is about my avatar, not the robot on the quilt. Actually, that's a photo from the old Republic serial, "King of the Rocketmen," which I reference in my signature. It's too bad the avatar picture is so small, you can't see that I very carefully replaced his rocket backpack with a Singer Rocketeer. Here's a link to a larger photo. http://www.tatethegreat.com/images/CommandoCody5.jpg
