Hand-Look Quilting Stitch

Hand-Look Quilting Stitch

The Hand-Look Quilting Stitch is used to create the look of hand-sewn running stitches. The top of the machine is threaded with either an invisible thread or a thread color that matches the top fabric.  The bobbin is thread actually appears on the top side of the fabric as “running stitches”, so the bobbin is threaded with a thread color that is desired for the stitching that appears on the top side of the project.

Applications


Echo Quilting

Echo quilting, also called 'outline quilting', is done by following around the shape of an applique, a design printed in the fabric, or even an embroidery. The hand-look quilting stitch looks like row of stitches sewn by hand. Thread the bobbin in a color you want for the stitches which will actually appear on the top side of your quilt layers. Thread the needle with a thread color that blends with the top fabric. Select the hand-look quilting stitch and sew a sample first. It may be necessary to increase the upper thread tension to help "pull" the bobbin thread up a bit more. Adjust stitch length as desired. For echo quilting, sew around a design, creating an "outline" around it. Continue sewing additional rows as desired. It is helpful to use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) for a clear view of the sewing area.

Sashiko

The look of sashiko stitching can be created using the hand-look quilting stitch, which looks like a row of stitches sewn by hand. Thread the bobbin in a color that you want for the stitches which will actually appear on the top side of your project. Thread the needle with a thread color that matches or blends very well with the top fabric. Select the stitch and try sewing a sample first. It may be necessary to increase the upper thread tension to help "pull" the bobbin thread up a bit more. Adjust stitch length as desired for the look of your project. For creating a sashiko pattern, try a removable fabric marker to draw stitching guidelines on the fabric. It may be helpful to use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models), which provides a clear view of the sewing area.
