How to Make a Quilt – Machine Quilting
submitted by: Patchwork Posse

Description:

This tutorial is about 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. Great for beginner quilters or if you need to sew a quilt this weekend!

Instructions:

1)Spray the backing fabric and then lay your batting on top– smoothing out everything. If there is a wrinkle in the batting pull on it gently to release it and then smooth again.

2) Spray the batting of the fabric with the spray adhesive again.

3) Smoothing out everything. If there is a wrinkle in the batting pull on it gently to release it and then smooth again.
I found when I turned the quilt over there were a few wrinkles in the backing. Pull the fabric back, smooth out again to release the wrinkles…..you might need to give a few shots of adhesive to keep it in place. No biggie.

4) Take the quilt sandwich to you machine and start quilting!

5) Use a walking foot for straight line quilting. This foot allows the fabric to move ahead on the top and on the bottom. Nothing gets shifted when using this foot.
