Not all people are quilters. We know this even though making a placemat is also quilting albeit a small project! The Janome Horizon MC 15000 Quilt Maker helps me with quilting as it has all the built in features on the new machine that I might need to help me with quilting.
Janome Tokyo engineers developed a quilting foot specifically designed to work with rulers/quilting templates. This foot has a thick edge with a ‘V’ shaped opening for better visibility of where the need is stitching. There are several different manufactures of quilting rulers. Different shapes will produce different stitch patterns.
Open your machine screen and select the sewing application (T-shirt icon) and then Quilting> Ruler Work.
Now place your template on the fabric and follow the edge of the template with the QR foot.
You might prefer to use your Janome walking foot for quilting rather than using a ruler/template? >>>>> Janome Canada has partnered with Melissa Marginet who recently published a book with loads of designs and how-to help for quilting with the walking foot. This book was reviewed on janomelife here. Janome’s name for our superior walking foot is the AcuFeed Flex foot. janomelife
