Are you ready to learn how to make the most of your sewing machine for machine quilting? Follow along with quilting expert Sherry Duncan on this Learn, Make, Create! episode, Walking Foot Fun. Sherry demonstrates how a walking foot works to create beautiful and even straight-line machine quilting. She describes it as the easiest of all machine quilting.

As you prepare your 3 machine-quilting block designs, you'll add 3 more pages to your machine-quilting sampler book. Work along with Sherry to experiment with 2 decorative block motifs, a wavy ribbon stitch, a serpentine stitch, geometric echoing and decorative stitches with your walking foot.

Use the materials listed below to create your own stitch book. Follow along with Sherry's multipart series to complete each page in your book with various machine-quilting stitches and techniques.

Sampler Book Materials List (per page -- make as many pages as desired)
  • 2 (8" x 8") pieces dark-colored 100% cotton fabric
  • 1 (8" x 8") piece batting
  • Contrasting thread
Note: Use a 1-inch split ring to join book pages together
