Meet Miss Kate in her diamonds! To get some template practice in while preparing for the GRAVITY Quilt Along, I began Rock Candy, a pattern by Jaybird Quilts that uses the Sidekick Ruler. She's this week's only finish!
I've never been super impressed with the generic walking foot I purchased for my old Bernina 830. It doesn't pull the fabric through very well, and I really have to push it through which results in tiny and sometimes uneven stitches. This is why nearly all of my quilting is free motion meandering even though some quilts just call for straight-line stitching.
Does anyone know if the original Bernina walking foot would function better?
The backing is a red and white print from the Miss Kate line. I forgot to take pictures of it before I hung it on my sewing room wall. Yep, this is a keeper! I've been inspired by Camille Roskelley's sewing room quilt collage to make some cheerful quilts for my happy space!
The binding is a fun dot fabric from my leftover binding stash. See, I do use scraps!
