    Default Echo stitching

    What length would you echo stitch this quilt. It’s a huge project need to complete by Christmas. I’m really hoping I can finish in time. I don’t have a long arm just my Janome or Brother. Definitely going to use my walking foot though. All the boarders also have the a design in them to big to get into the picture.

    Are you asking about stitch length or the distance between echos?

    Beautiful quilt! Not sure if this helps but on my Babylock I use a 2.5 or 3 for stitch length and tend to use a pressure foot width between rows. This works well for me, I can manage following the foot much better than eye balling and find I can adjust simply by changing the foot or moving the needle one way or the other.

    I am certainly no expert but I probably would stitch around the design, then about 1/4 to 3/8" then a bit wider perhaps 1/2", using your presser foot as a quide is also great recommendation.

    That's going to be beautiful! I'd use the edge of the presser foot. I have a presser foot that has grids on either side, so I can go up to an inch.

    I'm not good with planning quilting designs, but I just have to comment on what a beautiful quilt this is going to be. Please don't forget to post a picture of the quilt when you finish.

    Asking about stitch length not much room for width between the appliqués and going to follow my walking foot.
