Beginning Quiltmaking Series #10 - Preparing To Machine Quilt



If you’re interested in free motion quilting, there are some tools you need, and some that will make your experience much easier. In this session, we will discuss what the various feet are for, how to put them on your machine, and how to set your machine up for free-motion quilting. We will also discuss adjusting tension, marking tools, and make sure you’re ready to begin free motion quilting!
