To some quilters, free motion is similar to a four-letter word, but if you have the proper knowledge, you can easily build the skills necessary to quilt like a pro. I’ve got 6 tips to set up the sewing machine for free motion quilting that will make the job easier for you! I’ll be using the Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 930 for my free motion exploration.
I’ll have tips on threads, needles, marking and much much more. There’s a great project at the end of the week for you to get some practice at free motion quilting.
Tip 1 – enlarge the sewing space around the needle
Tip 2 – use the single hole stitch plate
Tip 3 – choose the appropriate free motion foot
Tip 4 – set the Sapphire 930 to the appropriate free motion mode
Tip 5 – drop the feed dogs
Tip 6 – use the Needle Stop Up/Down function
