Trapunto, Quilting and Binding by Machine
I'm also trying out different bindings. On this next sample I tried a piped binding finished entirely on the machine!
I can't recommend Ricky's DVD highly enough because there is so much to learn on it. He demonstrates squaring the quilt, free motion quilting, using thicker threads in the bobbin, designing feather quilting designs, piped bindings and more. You can see him doing all of this on his Dragon Rhapsody quilt as well as on smaller samples. I know lots of people who think it's impossible to use an ordinary sewing machine to quilt a full sized quilt but Ricky does just that on this video.
