Beginner quilting step by step: If you want to do beginner quilting, you will need the quilting foot to insert into a home or industrial machine. Make your sandwich with fabrics, it can be, for example, a fabric for the lining and the top and a blanket to put inside.
Hand Quilting: Hand quilting is a traditional quilt, which takes a little longer and has the function of joining the layers of fabric, decorating the piece with a seam that applies well. It is interesting for those who want to make very straight and geometric finishes, because with the machine you will need a special presser foot. By hand, you have more time to enjoy the pleasure of quilting, and, what is more, you can do fine finishing with calm and precision. You can also use any accessories that make your design more defined on the fabric. In beginner quilting, the hand style is not to be missed.
Irish Quilt: Modern Irish Quilt translates a culture and fills patchwoks with geometric figures in quantity, as in the creation of a mosaic. The Irish Quilt designs involve straight figures with many color nuances, mostly as figures are rhombuses, rectangles, or squares, as in Scottish skirts. Scottish skirts are also known as Kilt. Kilt” in the ancient language spoken by the Scots (who have influence from the same Gaelic region that also corresponds to Ireland) means “to fasten a garment to the body. Quilting, however, will attach different fabrics to each other to form an amazing composition of designs, cores, and textures.
Machine quilting: To quilt on a home machine, you will probably need a quilting foot and a quilting presser foot. Each machine has its own particularities, so adjust it as best you can, taking care not to injure yourself while making the quilt. Adjust the thread tension and speed, hide the machine’s teeth with tape (if you don’t have the option to lower them), and be careful not to cover the needle thread. Even if your machine is small, it is possible to make a very good quilt, but be patient, because it will take more work to handle the garment. Quilting with an industrial machine: The quilting feet and presser foot for this type of machine are different from those for a domestic machine. Always check which material is compatible with your machine and adjust it to best suit your quilting practice. A domestic machine can have the same quality as an industrial machine, with a few differences. In the domestic machine the stitch is slower due to low productivity, having less output and speed. Then, in the industrial machine there may be more possibility of resources for wide production with more practicality.
