I Echo Quilting Using the Free-motion
Echo Quilting Foot "E"
Sewing quilting lines at equal distances around a
motif is called echo quilting. The quilting lines,
which appear as ripples echoing away from the
motif, are the distinguishing characteristic of this
quilting style. Use the free-motion echo quilting foot
"E" for echo quilting. Using the measurement on the
presser foot as a guide, sew around the motif at a
fixed interval. We recommend attaching the foot
controller and sewing at a consistent speed.
