What is “Dot-to-Dot” Quilting?

Dot to Dot quilting  uses reference points, or “dots”, on quilts to create intricate looking designs, quickly and easily. These versatile designs look great on all types of quilts and in block of all different sizes. Plus, they are fun to customize and they give your quilting an intricate look.

In this video series, I’ll show you how to create several different designs and give you tips and suggestions on where to actually use them on your quilts. Whether you are a brand new machine quilter looking to improve your skills, or just looking for design inspiration, this free video series is for you!

About the Dot to Dot Free-motion Challenge

The “dot to dot” quilting technique actually came about due to a customer’s request for a geometric flower design all the way back in 2011. It not only looked great, it was actually pretty easy to quilt as well. Over the years, I have refined the technique by teaching classes and creating videos, and I am excited to share it with you in this free machine quilting video series. During the series, you’ll:

  • Learn how to create intricate Dot to Dot designs, with minimal marking.
  • Get access to free quilting diagrams and tip sheets.
  • Discover how to create your own Dot to Dot design variations.
  • Watch as I demonstrate the designs on a sewing machine and a longarm quilting machine.

I’ll also share common troubleshooting suggestions, quilting tips as well as advice on where to use the designs on your quilts.

No matter where you are on your machine quilting journey, this class is for you!

A printable tip sheet with quilting diagrams is a great tool to help you master these designs. It’s for that reason that I put them together for each of the videos.
