Matchstick quilting is a term used to describe straight line quilting？placed very close together， about 1/8″； or a matchstick’；s width apart. This method can add an interesting texture to any quilt project when used with different colored threads， or in unquilted areas which will appear puffier or more pronounced than areas with matchstick quilting.
My favorite foot for creating matchstick quilting is the Patchwork foot #97D？with the Dual Feed feature on my B 770 QE.pillow shams floral
This foot is specially designed for accurate feeding and stitchingaccent pillow case baby burlap sofa， with a narrow groove under the flat sole serving as a thread channel for smooth piecing and quilting. The small needle opening helps prevent fabric from being pulled down into the feed dog when sewing narrow seams， and helps create perfect stitches when quilting. This foot features evenly spaced marks along the edge and on the front of the foot to help evenly space your stitches. Watch the quick video tip below to see how to use these marks to create perfectly spaced 1/8″； matchstick quilting， and keep reading below for more matchstick quilting tips!

The other day I was trying to come up with a last-minute holiday crown I could wear to a party. It needed to be inexpensive and literally take five minutes to make – and thus these Three 5-Minute Holiday Crowns were born. One is made with glitter gold leaf branches, the other is made from holly wire garland, and the final one is made with pipe cleaners.
