Quilting 101: How to Straight Line Quilt

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing my tips for how to do straight line quilting on a quilt. I’ll be showing you how to what supplies you need as well as some of my helpful tips for marking your designs and trying something new! I hope this helps you out! So let’s get started!



For this tutorial you will need some batting, some scrap fabric , a ruler, a marking tool, and a walking foot for your sewing machine. You can also straight line quilt with a regular sewing foot, I just suggest going a bit slower so your fabric doesn’t shift.
