FMQ - Chevron with a Twist - Part I - QP Curved Template Crosshatch (Giveaway too!)

Hi everyone -- I hope you're surviving this crazy March weather.  Here in the Northeastern USA we've had a few days of nearly 50 degree temps and sun - but many more days with sub freezing temps, nasty wind and snow.  Although the sewing days have been fun, we're all ready to break into spring.  Here's hoping it comes soon - these are the evenings I'm dreaming of...
Keuka Lake - Summer 2013 - Family Fishin'
In case you missed it, my latest free quilt design, "Chevron with a Twist" was published on the Moda Bake Shop on February 23rd.  You can read my introductory blog post here or go directly to the Moda Bake Shop recipe by clicking here.

In the recipe, I outline all the cutting, piecing and applique details for making the quilt, but only a few images and details about the free motion quilting.  What's fun was that the free motion quilting was stitched using Aurifil 50Wt Mako Cotton (love that thread!!) on my Janome Horizon domestic sewing machine -- YOU can do it too!!
In today's post I would like to share more about free motion quilting
Chevron with a Twist
and let you in on a great giveaway!
Woohoo...
Let's start with detailing the Curved Crosshatch quilting.

Some background:

Chevron with a Twist was my first attempt at using EQ7 software for designing a quilt.
Although the learning curve was big, it was well worth the investment (time and $$).
EQ7 Chevron with a Twist Design Print
Just prior to finishing Chevron with a Twist, Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple announced her brand new QP Curve Templates for Free Motion Quilting (long arm, mid-arm, and domestic machines).
Linda is one of the amazingly talented quilters that I follow on social media.  She has a great blog, a Facebook page and an Instagram account that I stalk.  I'm always inspired by what she creates on her long arm machine -- really -- over the top beautiful every time!  

Follow her - I promise you won't be disappointed.  Even if you don't FMQ your own quilts, Linda's quilting designs will give you tons of ideas to share with your long arm quilter.

Here is a sample of Linda's beautiful quilting.
"Portland Rose" was created by the amazing Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop) and quilted by Linda Hrcka.  The Linda and Lisa quilt won a BLUE RIBBON at AQS Paducah in 2014!  What an honor and certainly much deserved by these two talented ladies.
You can read/see more "Portland Rose" on Linda's blog here.

SO, here is this very talented professional long arm quilter with a awesome set of curved acrylic templates that SHE DESIGNED... The QP Curve Templates.
I had to have them! 
I ordered the entire set and started on a mission to find a way to use them.

Back to EQ7 -- What's neat about EQ7 is that you can print a black and white image of your design (layout only) and use it to sketch potential FMQ motif.

I was pretty sure I wanted to stitch feathers in the Chevrons, and because I was itching to use the QP Curve Templates, I came up with this new to me "Feather Fireworks" aka "Feather Star-Burst" design for the non-Chevron blocks
I kinda liked the sketch so I started quilting.  Chevrons first... after considering two different designs for the Chevrons I settled on feathers.  What a great way to hone your feather skill - that's a lot of feathers!
I will share the chevron feather process in a separate post.
Next quilting step:  Feather Star-Burst aka Feather Fireworks!  Here's the design and I'll share how to stitch this one too -- in a separate post.

**NOTE: I posted more information about Feather Starburst here -- check it out **
The full-size on-point blocks were all filled with Feather Star-Burst.
I'm really having fun with this quilt and learning The QP Curve Templates!
 At this point I realize I need something a little different in the half blocks or the setting blocks....
A new sketch...
 Hummmh... this might work...Curved Crosshatching!  

Note: I'd been itching to stitch a curved crosshatch on my domestic machine since I purchased Karen McTavish's "Custom Curves" book.  Karen and Rhonda Beyer make beautiful designs with curved templates in that book (a must have book for anyone that FMQ's).

Ok - lets see if I can actually create a acceptable curved crosshatch on my domestic machine using The QP Curve Templates...
I used the #20 QP Curve Template for the Curved Crosshatch
Remember, I'm new to using rulers of any type on my domestic machine... 
Here's the trial run with a narrow Crosshatch...
Trial run for the large Crosshatch
Trial run for "Just the right size" Crosshatch

It was fun to learn how to use The QP Curve templates on practice pieces ...  Once they were created and I placed them near the quilt -- it was obvious that I should go with the "not too wide, not too narrow" design... ha ha ha!! (I won't mention that it had a lot to do with how much time I wanted to spend quilting...).  The "just the right size" crosshatch had 11 lines each side of the crosshatch.

Because I'm new to using acrylic rulers/templates  I chose to mark each line on each block - it gave me piece of mind to get the quilting done with minimal ripping (picking).
I used a run of the mill water soluble marking pen to mark each line.
(Details in the video below)

 What's in a Foot?

To work with acrylic templates on a domestic machine you need a foot that won't slip under or on-top-of the template.  Many thanks to Amy at Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures for sharing her knowledge on the subject last year.  I ordered the Janome "Free Motion Frame Quilting Feet Set" for the 1600P - Part# 767-434-005 which included a 1/4" Ruler Foot and an Open Toe Quilting Foot.  Also showing (below) is the closed toe foot (not included in the kit) I use when stitching around wool applique.

The 1/4" Ruler Foot is similar to a hopping foot for a long-arm machine.  It is perfect to ride against an acrylic template that is 1/4 thick.

On the Janome, if the template was much thicker than a 1/4", I may have run into trouble with it hitting against the built in walking foot mechanism.  I'm just sneaking under it with The QP Curve Templates (thankfully).

So I marked and quilted 13 outside 1/2 blocks, 6 inside 1/2 blocks, and 2 corner 1/4 blocks with the curved crosshatch.  
By the time I finished them I was feeling pretty confident -- maybe the next time I'll only have to mark my starting lines.
Now I'll share with you my Not So Professional YouTube videos outlining the marking and quilting process using The QP Curve Templates.

The first video shows you how I marked this particular quilt using
The #20 QP Curve Template.
(Click the image below to watch the video)
 The second video shows you how I quilted the blocks using The #20 QP Curve Template and my Janome Ruler foot.
(Click the image below to watch the video)
Please note -- these are first takes of videos AND the first time I've prepared anything like them.
I stumble over a few words - but I hope they will still be helpful to you.  
Prepare yourself to see and hear me at my quilting finest ;)

  1. I would use the rulers to mark quilts, help make templates for blocks and to sew with them on a Singer machine. As far as free motion, still trying to get the hang of it. I'm fine in a small space but doing any big free motion is to hard right now. 24Tangent@gmail.com

  7. HI Karen - I am just starting out with a APQS Millie and am increasingly drawn to the precision work you can do with rulers. I have done some nice work with straight rulers, but would love to take it to the next level with curves! I follow Linda's blog for inspiration, and am amazed by all the useful information you have given in your post.

  10. Ingenious! Your video was terrific, Karen! Right when I wondered if the ruler would slip you mentioned the db sided tape.
    On a funny note, love your sweatshirt sleeve:)
    I've got many quilt tops basted and ready to sew, so I'd try the template on one of them. I use an older Bernina and took a machine quilting class with Harriet Hargrave many years ago and have machine quilted ever since.

  13. Your quilting is beautiful! I just started free motion quilting...I was always afraid to do it in fear of ruining my quilt. I started reading blogs and watching videos and with some practice I was off. I love it! I use my Bernina and I'm so happy with it. Linda's rulers would be the next step in my FMQing journey. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Happy Sewing,
    Leanne

    BTW thanks for the info on the curved crosshatch

  16. I really enjoyed your videos! They gave me hope I could do that cool crosshatching on my machine. I have a Viking Sapphire. I have free-motion quilted on it but it is challenging. I have the Moda Bakeshop Trifle Quilt top waiting for a back and then the quilting. There is a lot of space to try some of the things you have done in your gorgeous quilt. So glad you shared about how you did your quilting. It really was an encouragement to me! Blogger doesn't like me so here is my email: lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com. Thanks so much! The rulers look amazing.

  17. I have just started playing with rulers and getting used to a new machine for free motion quilting--an Artistic 18-incn sit down machine. I really love the look of curved crass-hatching and have been dying to try it ... thanks for the opportunity in this fantastic give-away.

  18. I am struggling to learn fmq. Most of my quilting is done by hand so I would love a chance to try out these rulers. I can use all the help I can get.

    I enjoy your blog and this post was so informative. Thank you for all you do for us out here.

  25. I'm so glad Linda had a link to your site Karen! I will now add it to my favorites! I did notice the new rulers on Linda's site and have been interested in them. Reading that you used them on your domestic machine with such great results is so inspiring to me! I am fairly new to FMQ and use a Juki 2010q. I love this machine. My latest project is to make placemats with Kona Solid colors just to practice my FMQ skills. These rulers would be a great to practice with. Thank you!

  84. Thanks for the opportunity to win these rulers Karen! You have done an awesome job on that quilt. Loved it every time I saw it.
    I have been doing FMQ for about 6-7 years. Mostly because I have arthritis in my hands and can't hand quilt. I am currently using a Bernina 440.
    My friend who is doing some stunning FMQ started talking about these rulers a few weeks ago. I would love to win these and have a go myself.

  87. I have a Powerquilter by Pfaff (a sit-down machine) which they tell me is the same machine as the sweet 16 and the Tiara, just a different name on it. So I recently ordered the ruler foot for a Sweet 16 and hope that it will fit my Powerquilter. Then I would love to do some ruler work and cross-hatching, but I have no idea which rulers to get. So your set would give me lots of sizes and options, pick me pick me! karenlambdin@att.net

  88. I have been FMQ for 3-4 years, but only strippling. I have recently been practicing "other" designs trying to get out of my shell☺. I believe I have caught the "ruler" bug and really want to introduce them into my quilting. In fact, I ordered a couple from Linda so I could start to practice. I really like the look of curved cross-hatching and just the look of curves in general. I just purchased a Juki HZL600 and also the Janome ruler foot sets...was so excited to find out they were compatible. Thanks for the awesome giveaway and videos!

  96. Watched your videos. You did a great job. Love the quilting with Linda's rulers. I have a Babylock Crown Jewel and I've been longarm quilting for 2 years. I have so much to learn. The templates would be great for marking and quilting. Love how you used it for both your feather spines and the crosshatch. Thanks for the chance to win.

  99. I've been eyeing these rulers for awhile now--they look easy to use. I'd do all sorts of curved crosshatching and anything else I can think of! Using an Innova, been longarming for about 6 years, with different machines

  100. I sooo love your quilt♥ At our guild we have a challenge to make a red work quilt and mine is all done ready to quilt so these rulers would be sooo helpful. I have a Janome MC7700 and I have bee free motion quilting for about 4 years. I love it but have not ventured out into quilting designs Mostly stippling so this is what I am hoping to do on this quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

  101. I free motion quilt in fits and starts on a Bother Nouvelle 1500S and I am scared to make a mistake. I love to draft patterns using my EQ7 but never considered designing the quilting pattern. I might try that.

  103. Your quilting (and the quilt) is stunning! I would have never guessed that this was done with a domestic machine. And thanks for the videos explaining the process. I would use these templates to mark designs on my quilts. I quilt with an Elna, and I've been doing free motion for over ten years, but nothing I do looks as good as your work!

  121. Thank you Karen for sharing your information with us. I have just started hearing about ruler work on the domestic sewing machines and am so excited about it. I have been doing free motion for a long time now, and love the idea of more precision with the rulers and am anxious to give it a whirl! Am just now contemplating what to quilt on a top that has a lot of open space. The curved rulers would be fabulous.

  126. Karen, your works are jut beautiful. I am self teaching myself to quilt and FMQ for about two years now. I use an Elna 760, which is almost identical to a Janome 8900. I just purchased the Janome ruler toe set, thanks to Amy Johnson's blog. I am working on a quily for my one month old daughter and one for my mother in law. It would be hilarious to use the rulers on any of those, as it is almost impossible to obtain a decent lomg arm template where I live.

  127. Love the effect created with these templates. I use a Gammill Classic and my customers would love to see more curved quilting on their quilts. I have been slowly teaching myself freehand quilting between customer quilts for a few months and would love the chance to perfect this technique. Any kind of templates or longarm supplies are few and far between in my part of the world. I think I would have to make the chevron with a twist too - love it. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  133. Thank you so much for this INCREDIBLE giveaway! I have been FMQ for about six months now. I'm still quite a novice. I sew on a Baby Lock Ellure Plus. I would use the rulers to FMQ the quilt I am currently piecing for my son. It is all HSTs and I think the curved quilting would be a perfect juxtaposition to the angular design. Thank you again!

I am a huge fan of Linda's quilting (and now YOURS). I was thrilled to get to see her quilting in person in Paducah last year, and hope to see more this year. Thanks for the giveaway, even if I don't win. This post has been so educational!

  139. I'd love to try these rulers, I've tried other curved rulers and cannot get the results I'm after the lines never seem to be on the right side of the curve. I think Linda has finally figured it out. New to longarm quilting about 1.5 yr and I have an Innova.

  148. I've been itching to try to do ruler work. I've got a stack of quilt tops waiting to be quilted and I'm sure that the curved rulers would work perfectly in the side setting triangles on several of them! I quilt on two DSMs (a Janome 7700 and a Juki TL2010Q). I started machine quilting about six years ago because the hand quilting was just too hard on my hands.

    I watched your YouTube video last week and it was excellent! Thanks for doing it and thanks for the chance to win these great rulers!

    Hi Karen,
    Thanks so much for the marvelous videos about using the QP templates. I love Linda's quilting and would like to try to using her templates, but, even though she said they could be used with a domestic machine, I couldn't imagine how to do it. I had no idea there was a special foot ( I should have guessed - I think there's a special foot for everything!). I look forward to seeing your videos about sewing feathers!!
    Anyhow, to answer your questions . . . my next quilting project will be a queen size quilt that I made with French General fabrics. I haven' been machine quilting long, but, last year I took a class with Sue Nickels that made all the difference in the world. She is a wonderful instructor and I learned so much, that I feel I can take on a large quilt. I sew with a Janome 6600 machine. And I love it. Thanks again! mammich at comcast.net

  152. I'm so intrigued (and terrified) by ruler work. Chevron with a Twist is amazing! I have an HQ16, but would love to learn to fmq on my Janome 6600, so I can see Linda's templates doing double duty. I have a pile of tops that would be suitable for either machine. Looking forward to more videos - great learning experience. mtlakequilter@gmail.com

  158. What a great informational post! And what a great give away. I have been FMQing for 20 years on my Bernina, but 2 years ago I took the plunge and bought a Gammill 18-8 and LOVE it. It was worth every penny! Those templates would really help with my FMQ. I have one arc template that I love and really want to expand my set. Right now I have 2 QOV and a King size Log cabin that could really use these templates. (steamtrain1003@hotmail.com)

  159. I have only free motioned a few wallhangings. I have done more in the way of stitch in the ditch, but would love to be able to do more with free motion. I have some tops completed that would absolutely benefit from these rulers. I would love to try them.

  171. Hi Karen,
    I am thrilled to have discovered your blog through Linda's "Quilted Pineapple" blog.
    I have owned my Innova longarm for less than a year & would very much like to improve my free motion skills with it.
    I've quilted on my domestic for over 5 years but was never satisfied with my free motion. Your Chevron with a Twist is absolutely SPECTACULAR...I am SEW impressed with what you were able to accomplish with Linda's rulers.
    I have a "Colorful Cubes" quilt almost completely pieced & would LOVE to win the set of Linda's rulers so I could perhaps make it sing like your quilt does! It is truly a work of art.
    Thank you SEW much for giving all of us a chance to win this generous giveaway.

    Gratefully,

  179. I'm just starting to quilt my quilts on my Pfaff Expression 3.0, and I think I'd begin by using these great rulers as marking tools. I'd need to watch the videos over and over and probably have someone here to hold my hand before I tried to use them on my quilt with my DSM as I quilted. But I can imagine doing it, which is the first step, right? Thanks for a great review--I'm pinning it for later.
