‘Crooked Path’

So. what did you sew for ‘(Inter)National Quilt Day’? My fabrics for the 2015 pattern – Crooked Path – have been cut, sorted, sewn together and layered with wadding and backing.

Next comes the quilting and I thought I’d try the new ‘Westalee’ ruler foot and templates for domestic machine quilting. It took time to get the shank required for my Mum’s old Bernina – an 801 – that I just love using. The ‘Westalee’ foot requires either a low or high shank according to what type of machine you are going to use. Information about this is on their website.

The foot is quite large and thick so that it sits snuggly inside the ruler shape. For my first go I am choosing the ‘Spin-e-Fex’ #4, 3 1/2″ ruler, which comes in the Sampler Template Set 1.

I’ll let you know how I go!
