We’ve had so many requests from viewers for more information about machine quilting that we decided to devote this episode to just that subject. Longarm Quilter and Quilting Educator, Dawn Cavanaugh and Marianne share with you how to choose the right thread, batting, and backing for a quilt, how to prepare a quilt for machine quilting, and how to develop your skills through practice techniques.
Dawn says the first thing you need to think about is thread and explains the benefits of using either cotton or polyester threads. Dawn also recommends using busy fabrics for backing to conceal any quilting hiccups. For more quilting inspiration, check out FonsandPorter.com and learn more about the “Love of Quilting” TV series.
