The Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set is an excellent foot for free motion quilting. This set of low shank feet with attachments has everything you need. This foot is made to glide smoothly over your quilt top or other project and the easy to adjust thumb screw allows the foot to be easily raised or lowered. This foot set comes with a ruler foot, open toe, closed toe, and echo quilting guide for a variety of FMQ techniques and visibility. The spring loaded height adjustment allows for slight upward movement of the foot should it hit an excessively bulky area or seam.
This tote is a great project to practice a sewing technique you’ve wanted to do in a smaller project that can be finished quickly. Here I use this project to practice my Free Motion Quilting skills, but you can easily use up old quilt blocks, embroidery, Sashiko, or try another technique for your tote. The basic instructions will work for any material, but it’s tailored to a quilted outer.
Here is our beginner guide to Free Motion Quilting with a Ruler (also called templates). Free Motion Quilting templates help you to create designs like Baptist Fans, Arcs, Clamshells, Waves and more. This getting started guide will help you install your ruler foot, setup your machine and get started!
