HAND QUILTING

For hand quilting it is a good idea to use a good quality quilting frame.

This allows you to concentrate on a selected area of the patchwork quilt and have control of this particular section of the design.

Use mercerised cotton quilting thread such as YLI in either a solid colour or one of the very attractive variegated designs.

The purpose of quilting is to tie the three layers – the quilt top – the wadding – and the backing – together to prevent them moving in use. With a needled cotton wadding the normal quilting distance needed to safely hold a quilt is approximately 10 inch spacing.

This however can develop into an art form in its own right and quilted patterns on the patchwork quilt greatly enhance the end result.
