I Quilting

Sewing together the quilt top, batting, and backing is
called quilting. You can sew the quilt with the
walking foot to keep the quilt top, batting, and
backing from sliding. The walking foot has a set of
feed dogs that move together with the feed dogs in
the needle plate during sewing.
For straight line quilting, use the walking foot and
the straight stitch needle plate. Always select a
straight stitch (middle needle position) when using
the straight stitch needle plate.

Memo
• Sew at slow to medium speed.
• Do not sew in reverse or use stitches that
require side ways or reverse feeding.
Always check to be sure that your quilting
surface is securely basted before beginning
to sew. Specialized machine quilt needles
and threads are also available for machine
quilting.
