SCRAPTASTIC SCRAP QUILT
PREPARING THE QUILT FOR QUILTING
Preparing the Scraptastic Scrap for Quilting: In this video I do a quick finish up on the border of our Scraptastic Scrap Quilt. Now that the quilt is complete, both front and back, we are reading to begin the quilting process. Whether you will be straight-line quilting, free motion quilting, long arm quilting or using your embroidery machine to quilt, you will need to first prepare your quilt for quilting. In this video you will see me using Pellon 90/10 Cotton batting. I really like this batting and have several rolls of it. I am also using 505 Spray to hold the layers of my quilt sandwich together. I like to lay my quilt top on a table. You can use the floor or the wall if you find that to be easier. The method that works best is the one that fits your style best. I use clamps to hold my quilt in place. I purchase these clamps at Harbor, Tool and Freight. Preparing the quilt for quilting is time consuming and necessary. If I can give you one tip, it is not to start your quilt sandwich if you are in a rush. Do it when you have some time. You will find that the process will be much more enjoyable.
