How about learning a little bit of free-motion quilting to finish off our sampler. You could of course just use straight stitch, but why not practice free-motion instead. This is a great opportunity to try it. To make it easier, I'm going to include a video so you can actually see it in action.
Now that we have the quilt layered and pinned securely, it is time to begin quilting. The first quilting I like to do, when possible, is one or two securing rows through the quilt, just to help prevent the layers from moving. We will start by stitching two lines through the center of the quilt. I will use Stitching in the ditch (also known as Ditch Stitch quilting) so let's see how that is done first.
Probably the biggest question about quilting your quilt is how to quilt it. There are so many designs and quilting techniques that sometimes it is really hard to decide on what would look best for your particular quilt.
