I love planning my quilting using dry erase markers and a piece of Plexiglas that can be purchased at a Home Improvement store inexpensively. I have tried to use some of my other rulers, and while it does work, the view is somewhat obscured because of all the markings on the rulers.
For the actual quilt block, I’m going to quilt diagonal lines with my walking foot.
Since I will be whipping up two more blocks (and making this into a super fun table runner) there will be sashing and borders to quilt. In these areas, I’ll quilt a design from Lori Kennedy’s book (get the ebook for $9.99). Anyhoooo, the design is called “Double Loop Vine” and I think it perfectly mimics the leaves in the fabrics, don’t you?
Thanks for stopping by! Let’s go machine quilt our own quilts.
Check this out – so exciting for free-motion!
I just discovered this great FREE app for Free-Motion doodling.
Now we can practice our doodles EVERYWHERE! We can even share them with each other.
Additionally, we can import our own quilt block photos into the app and doodle on them as we plan our quilting strategies.
Planning the Quilting of Road to Oklahoma
And now for my favorite part….the QUILTING. For this block, I use both the walking foot and the free motion foot.
If you have an idea on how you’d like this to be quilted, please share!!
PS. If you’re enjoying these videos (and blog) please share across social media!
PS. How did you quilt your Road to Oklahoma block?
Be sure to watch to the end! I show a “cheap seat” work around for the plexiglass “tool” I demonstrated in a previous video.
I love using these pins to baste my quilts rather than the ‘stinky’ spray baste. Click on the image for more details.
