I started watching videos of quilters who quilted on their domestic sewing machines. But it wasn't until I bought videos by Patsy Thompson that I started to enjoy the whole quilting process.
Patsy introduced me to spray adhesive.
I don't have a design wall, but I was able to lay my quilt sections onto an old rug and spray each part. I started with a small project. After the three sections were sandwiched together, I just picked up the quilt and headed for my machine.I was so pleased with how it turned out that I ventured into larger projects.
Now, I am not a great machine quilter, but even so, I can quilt and quilt and never have to worry about running into or over pins. In a lot less time then if I pinned and unpinned. The basting spray and my walking foot, have been wonderfully freeing quilting tools for me.And the best part! No more folds caught up in the backing.
Here is a little sample of some quilting I am able to accomplish
I hope you have a Happy Quilting day!
