Great Tips, Whether You’re Quilting on a Home Machine or Hiring a Longarm Quilter!

Once your quilt top is done you’re faced with the decision of how to quilt it and what quilting design to use. There are any number of ways to quilt a quilt and designs to choose from, but there are certain considerations that make the decision a lot easier.

In the following video, a longarm quilter gives an excellent overview of the decision-making process. These tips will help you decided what to quilt on your quilt regardless of who will do the quilting and how the quilting will be done (on a home sewing machine or on a longarm machine).

The fabrics, the quilt blocks and much more should be taken into account, as well as the skills of the person doing the quilting.

While this is helpful for home quilters, especially those who do free motion quilting (straight line quilters will benefit too!), it’s a must-see for anyone who will be hiring a longarm quilter.

Sit back, relax and enjoy this excellent video presentation by Karen Hansen.



PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
