While I was working on a client quilt this week, I recorded a short video showing how I used my hands while my Gammill Statler was stitching out a digital design, to manipulate the quilt top and ease in any bits of fullness to avoid getting unwanted pleats and tucks. I got the idea from a video Linda Taylor did for the Best of Both Worlds series for Gammill Quilting (look for that great set of tutorials on Youtube!) and it was definitely beneficial for me, and in the end for my client who ended up with a lovely finish on her quilt.
There is soooooooo much to learn in this computerized quilting arena! But I just try to focus on a little bit at a time so my brain won’t explode! LOL Of course, I want to try ALL THE THINGS!
First a few photos, then the video at the bottom. All are posted with permission 🙂
Have a great weekend!
