Leah Day's Explore Walking Foot Quilting: Jagged Plain

 Another walking foot design from Leah!

Jagged Plain

This one builds on the practice we have already done.  It's important to keep sharp corners and to keep the lines the same distance apart.

Here is my practice block.

I messed up in the corners of the first two lines of stitching, after the foundation line, so decided to mark the stitching lines instead of using the guide bar for the stitching.  When I wasn't at the correct ending point I found it was best to turn and just keep going.  My earlier mess ups were because I didn't realign correctly to the earlier line.  I think the corners being crisp is more important than the lines being absolutely consistent. My lines are one inch apart. When I was marking I was surprised sometimes at where the lines intersected, so marking is good with this design.

So this is what I did for quilting today.
