    meandering

    I'm new to quilting. I don't have a quilting sewing machine and I was wondering if it's possible to meander quilt on a basic sewing machine. If anyone knows some good tutorials for this please point me in the right direction. I've tried to google it.

    Hi Heather, Welcome to the Forum! Are you asking about Stippling where there is no set pattern? I checked out youtube and found several meandering quilting videos but they seem to all have some kind of pattern. If you can drop or cover your feed dogs on your machine I do not see why you cannot do this. I think if you watch any of those videos it will help you. Good Luck!

      I use a cheap Brother machine from Walmart and I meander on that by covering the feed dogs with the plastic plate they provided. I would practice on scrap fabric first though because until you get your foot going at the proper speed and your hands moving at the correct speed, you may get loops on the back and you don't want that.
      The quilters machine gloves are the best things I invested in to help with the meandering to grab a hold of the quilt. Of course, I guess you could use just regular rubber gloves, I would think they do the same thing.

      What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish
