    Have any of you used a pintuck in your quilts? Do you do it before you sandwich the batting and backing?

    i haven't done that yet but you'll definitely want to do it before you sandwich.

    Ok, thanks. I just learned how to do it last week. Shoot, I've had a double needle for years and didn't know how to use it!

    I haven't made pin tucks in quilts, but I"m sure it would look really nice. I usually make my pin tucks when I make my heirloom pillow cases.

    I only made pintucks for my daughter clothes when she was little . I bet they would add a touch of class to the quilt.

    The only pic I have of the pintucks is what we did in class to practice.

    It was done on a wall quilt at the quilt shop, but here's my practice sample.... The orange circle next to it is a stitches eyelet.

    Thanks Patrice!!!
    I must see if they make that foot for my machine! I have some white fine linen napkins that I'm hand embroidering our monogram on in gold and purple. Wouldn't that look awesome framing the monogrammed corner or running about an inch from the edge beginning and ending just before and after the embroidery?

    Patrice,

    I learned how to do pintucks when I took an heirloom sewing class. Special machine feet make them easier but they can be done without one. They make a really neat effect on quilt squares etc. They would look really great in a crazy quilt or a wall hanging that showed off your machine's fancy stitches. You would do the pin tucks before you make the sandwhich and do the quilting.

    Go for it,

    Will do ady, but I did find in my very, very old Stitching book, how to do these by hand too. It's kind of awesome!
