How To Machine Quilt 6 Parallel Lines Without Marking Using Parallel Line Foot

How To Machine Quilt 6 Parallel Lines Without Marking Using Parallel Line Foot

I have always had trouble knowing how to Machine Quilt perfect parallel lines on my home sewing machine, Bernina 1130, and my longarm as well without a great deal of marking. I discovered this great little parallel foot would help me stitch parallel lines and I want to share it with you. I learned it comes down to where to focus your eyes. This works for Traditional Sit Down Home Machine Quilters as you focus your eye where you want to go. For Longarm, focus the distance away and use a template or ruler and line it up a 1/4" away and focus your eye where you want to go. This is important if you want to stitch to a certain point, seam, thread intersection by focusing on the edge of your foot. Also, use this technique machine quilting with a longarm when you use an expanded foot that you either switch out or slip over your original foot. It really is a matter of where you are looking to guide the fabric or machine focusing on the edge of the foot or extended foot, not on the needle. Watch as I machine quilt 6 Parallel Lines without having to mark on a Tradition Home Quilting Machine, using my dear old style Bernina 1130. This technique could be used on any home sewing machine that has a Universal Adaptor Snap-on foot. Here is another video you may find helpful on my Bernina using a ruler foot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZNJqXqNxJA You will see how to switch out the regular straight stitch foot #0 from my Bernina and replace it with a Universal snap-on adaptor holding a snap-on parallel foot. Watch as I sew 6 parallel lines without marking. You will know how to set up the foot and where to focus your eye when stitching straight-lines and curves. This little parallel foot could help you use extra fancy stitches, cover more area in less time and echo quilt at various distances depending on the areas of your quilt top. Imagine a whole new look to your quilts and machine quilted projects like handbags, large ruler bags and more without a lot of marking on the floor or dining room table. There is a bar that some sewing machines come with that can use that slides behind the needle bar and sticks out about 2"-3" so you can follow an edge or seam line.. With this, the lines become wobbly for me so it is not my favorite because I do not feel it is accurate enough. To be more accurate and to absolutely make your shapes dead-on use this super little foot for decorative and regular stitches as well.
