How to Make a Quilt – Machine Quilting
This is part of the How to Make a Quilt Series– Great for beginner quilters or if you need to sew a quilt this weekend!
Today we are working on our machine quilting- Machine quilting can be a little bit tricky. The smaller the quilt the easier it is…not to say it’s not impossible to do a larger.
The machine that I am using for this is the Brother Sewing Machine. In the past I have used a Janome also. Both worked great. You will need to use a quilting foot, lower the feed dogs (or change the setting to 0 so they don’t move) or use a walking foot.
The thing that I do that works the best and is the most time saver is use Thermoweb- Spray n Bond Basting
Adhesive. This stuff is awesome! It takes the place of a thousand pins. It’s super easy to use.
I kept with simple quilting for this small baby quilt. Just went around the squares once– using the seam as the guide for the distance. I also quilted the sashing and the border just once. I was thinking I could have done more quilting, but kept this simple.
