Aulas de quilting / Quilting lessons



Há duas semanas comecei com aulas de quilting e não poderia ter escolhido melhor professora. Na primeira sessão aprendi a cortar e a construir os blocos; na segunda, a coser tudo e a fazer a sandwich do top, batting e backing.

Two weeks ago I started my quilting lessons. I could't have chosen a better teacher. At the first session I learned how to cut and construct blocks; at the second one I was taught how to piece everything and how to make the top, batting and backing sandwich.



O trabalho de casa é quiltar tudo. Escolhi coser linhas a direito, pararelas aos quadrados... o problema é que não tenho walking foot (pelos vistos não há nenhum que se adapte à minha máquina de principiante). Vamos ver como corre...

My homework is to quilt it. I chose to sew straight lines that run parallel to the squares... the only problem is that I don't own a walking foot (apparently there's no walking foot that will fit my beginner's sewing machine). Let's see how it goes...

  2. It looks lovely! I was able to fit a universal walking foot, produced by Janome, on my sewing machine, just a no-brand (Lervia) from Lidl, so maybe there is hope for you? It really makes all the difference. I got my foot from Jaycotts here:http://www.jaycotts.co.uk/acatalog/Universal_Presser_Feet___Accessories.html
    Goodluck!

  8. Your quilt is beautiful (I love the colors). I'm curious how the machine quilting went without the walking foot. I usually do zippers without a zipper foot.
