If you’re not quite ready to try free motion quilting, use a roller presser foot on your machine to quilt curves with machine guided quilting (with feed dogs UP!) just as you do with straight lines. Bernina owners, try the #55 Leather Roller Foot. It pivots and follows curves with the fed dogs up. Don’t have a Bernina? Ask your sewing machine dealer for a roller presser foot that fits your machine.
