How To Hand Quilt A Large Quilt
Here are the rest of the quilt show photos from last weekend!!Here is a picture tutorial on how i handle a large quilt.I always spray outside, either over a rail,
or flat on a surface (or the ground) covered with an old bed sheet.I have the identifying cards from the quilter after each quilt.
I have used a 60% wool 40% polyester batting which is giving this quilt a softer and warmer feel.I lay the backing down (wrong side up), lay the batting on top and lay my quilt top on top of that (right side up of course).I pin it with lots and lots of large curved safety pins.I sandwich it just like i would any other quilt.
I use high loft batting for my hand tied quilts.I used leftover material for the surrounding borders.I usually pin about 5 apart.In these pictures i have already used my basting spay on the wrong side of the backing and on the wrong side of the top.
Instead just start in the center, quilt a section, and end in the middle.It is along the side where i repaired 2 small 2 tears along the solid red edge.Just stitch in place a few times back and forth to make sure your thread is secure, and bury your thread if you prefer (or not!).Large quilt block patterns can be used in many ways.
Large star blocks are perfect for medallion quilts, where a large quilt block is placed at (or near) the center of a quilt before being surrounded by other designs.Love, love, love the texture thus far.Once your quilt is quilted, you will make your binding and attach the binding to your quilt.One side is a patchwork star pattern.
One small white square has 5 little blue dots on it that i just noticed.Padded handles make taking clamps off and on easy for quick adjustments.Quickly secure quilt tops to your quilting frame with this clamp set.Quilt in the ditch with your walking foot, starting and stopping the line of stitch at intervals.
See what you can come up with.Set of two (2) clamps.So get your striped material out and start cutting.The hand quilting is breathing life into my little applique flower garden.
The leaves growing wherever they will are adding beautiful dimension and depth.The most obvious use is to sew a big block quilt that (often) goes together more quickly than a quilt made from (lots more) smaller quilt blocks.The second side is a starThe supplies used include dmc pearl cotton thread #8 and a dmc gold eye embroidery needle.
The way you cut and sew them together makes this block.There are many benefits to knowing all the methods for quilting, even if you don’t plan on hand quilting for all of your projects.These pictures are from the silver city quilt show in taunton, massachusetts.This one was made with different color of stripes.
This will keep tension off of your other fingers and, with enough practice, will give you the most even stitches.To know what i’m talking about, check out the video above.To stabilize your quilt, you quilt the ditch line closest to the center of the quilt running up and down.Try one or more big quilt blocks to sew throw pillow covers that coordinate with the color scheme for any room in your home.
Use this simple quilt tying technique to finish your quilt, or add handmade texture to your machine quilting.When the needle goes down from the top of the quilt, it hits the rounded edge of the spoon and then “glances off” the edge and comes back up again.When we hand quilt, we have a better understanding of the process, and it becomes easier to recognize the needs and steps that have to be taken to adjust or fix our progress as we go.You can lay these out anyway to create your own quilt.
You can see how i quilted this particular quilt right here.You can start/end stitching in a seam to hide it even better.You can use slightly thicker quilting thread or even pearl.
