About Quilting Designs

There are several terms in quilting that many persons may not be aware of except if they are an expert or have done their investigation in advance. A quilt basically consists of two layers of fabric with padding sandwiched in the middle. The quilt top is the top layer while backing is the back layer. These layers of fabric, together with the padding are held jointly by stitching or ties.

Edge to Edge Quilting is basically a single pattern that goes from edge to edge. There are recurrent designs that go from one edge to the other, whether that is top to bottom or up and down. There may be one or numerous pattern in edge to edge quilting. It is much easier to achieve this pattern with a machine as a machine can be set to repeat particular patterns. It is almost difficult to get the equivalent results with hand sewing because you cannot repeat the exact same pattern numerous times. Spacing and ordering are important and thus a machine would be perfect to attain the effect.

The quilt’s size and the size of the squares that make up the quilt are the things that decide exactly how complicated the quilting design will be. Though several quilters like to keep it simple with their designs, others look for a more complicated look. Using fabric with designs can make the work of a quilter easier, but you will have to cut each piece in the same size to make sure that they fit together properly to form the perfect size.
