Free Motion Quilting with Templates
using Westalee Templates for Free Motion Quilting on a Domestic Machine
Presented by Irene Huffman, Jazz Cat Designs

This is a beginning level free motion quilting class to introduce Westalee’s ruler foot and templates. The class is hands-on, so you’ll have a chance to use your new templates and practice some really fun techniques. Be sure to bring all your questions, too!

SUPPLY LISTS:

BASIC SKILLS NEEDED FOR THIS CLASS
  • Be familiar with your sewing machine.
  • Know how to wind and change a bobbin.
  • Know how to thread your machine and install your bobbin.
  • Know how to drop your feed dogs.
  • Know how to adjust your machine’s tension for free motion. Very important.
FABRICS AND BATTING
  • 1-1/3 yards of a dark solid color cotton fabric.
  • Suggest using bamboo, cotton, or 80/20 poly-cotton batting. Fluffy polyester batting seems to be harder to work with when you’re learning.
FABRIC PREPARATION BEFORE CLASS
  • Leave the fabric folded as is comes off the bolt. One side will be the front and one side will be the back.
  • You’ll have a piece to practice on that is about 48” long by about 20” wide.
  • Layer top, batting and backing.
  • Secure layers using your favorite method.
  • Recommend fusible batting or basting spray to secure layers. This is easier to handle than safety pins when using templates.
WESTALEE SUPPLIES
  • Westalee ruler foot. The Westalee foot must fit the machine you are using: high shank, high shank special, low shank, or mid shank. They are NOT interchangeable. (if you already have a ruler foot for your machine, you do not have to purchase a new ruler foot)
  • Westalee template: 12” arc (packaged with ruler foot if purchased "kit") .
  • Highly recommended:
    • Sampler Template Set #1 which includes Spin-E-Fex #4, 2” Circle, Circles on Quilts #36, 6” Spiral, Clamshell, and 4” Arc.
    • Westalee Free Motion Glider to cover your machine bed.
    • Westalee Cross-Hair Square
GENERAL SUPPLIES:
  • Sewing machine and accessories; your sewing machine manual. Please put a new needle in your machine before class. Suggest a 90/14 quilting needle or a 90/14 sharp needle. Bring extra needles with you.
    • NOTE: your machine must be in good working order – we’re not able to make repairs during classes.
  • Thread for quilting. Please wind a bobbin with your chosen thread before class. Good quality, 40 or 50 weight thread, either cotton or polyester will give good results. Suggest using a color lighter or darker than your fabric so you are able to easily see your work.
  • Quilting gloves.
  • Forceps or long tweezers for pulling bobbin thread to the top of your piece.
  • Marking pen or pencil for marking your practice piece. Please test this beforehand to make sure you can see it on your fabric and that it can be removed from your chosen fabric easily.
  • 6” x 24” ruler.
  • Small scissors.
