Yesterday I showed you my Bargello in Plaid quilt…and today I am sharing a video I made while machine quilting it. I used what I called a “hook and bump” quilting motif. Other quilters I’m sure have other names for it but I like to call quilting motifs according to the pieces that make up the design…for this, you make a hook and then add bumps so “Hook and Bump” is appropriate.
Kalissa was a big help and I can’t tell you how much I appreciated her editing help. Here’s the video….
If you have trouble seeing the video here, you can try THIS LINK.
The video is under 13 minutes long. I tried to make it long enough to include the information needed and enough time to see me stitch it so you can feel comfortable trying the design yourself.
Here are a few close-up pictures of the quilt so you can see the design in a finished state….
I say in the video that I don’t really feel qualified to “teach” a machine quilting class. I really don’t….but you asked for a video so I tried. Please note that these videos are intended for beginners.
I did order another piece of equipment that I am hoping might help get the camera closer to the stitching. Video making is all a big learning curve for me and Kalissa and I are still experimenting to find the exact equipment that will work best for filming. If anyone does this type of thing, feel free to recommend something to me.
Please give me some feedback so we can make these videos the best they can be. I hope you enjoy the video.
