We are going to do a traditional clamshell but then explore some other designs using these half circles. Take a look at our Roadmap.

It’s time to grab the BERNINA Walking Foot #50 and get ready to explore directional quilting in part 5 of the Stay Gold Quilt Along! Join in on the blog at weallsew.com.
Walking Foot #50 and the Dual Feed available on some BERNINA models both have similar functions – moving the top fabric while the bottom fabric is moved by the feed dog. This helps control shifting and moving of the layers of fabric and/or batting. Even though they have comparable purposes, the way they accomplish their goals is different and gives slightly different results. #sewing #quilting #tips #tricks #techniques
