About mattress can consider Napure. July 30, at 9: These early quilts provide a glimpse into the history of quilting as well as a story of what life was like during the inception of the United States. June 4, at 5:
Good luck and happy sewing! I have a few longarm quilters that I recommend. Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting is wonderful and so fast. Crinklelove is also wonderful for all-over patterns. And Mary of See Mary Quilt is a genius at custom quilting.
I made my husband a couch quilt which is a big hit. What size do you suggest I cut my squares? That really depends on how many squares you would like to cut — the larger the squares, the fewer to cut and sew.
How wide do you start with the fabric? I am asking for any advice on a quilting machine I can get. I am fairly new to quilting but would like to quilt my own. I am not interested in having a long arm as mt space is really limited. But I do not know how to investigate other options.
I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions I can get. A lot of domestic sewing machines have an extra long throat space and really great quilting stitch options. This amazing free motion feature regulates tension and stitch width with such amazing accuracy, you can feel like a free-motion pro without really being one.

I never could figure out why the adults would burst I to laughter when I told them that. I have a question if someone could please help me. My aunt and I are making a baby quilt for my baby girl coming in November. The batting for the quilt is 45in x 60in. I have 4 different fabrics to make the patches. My question is what measurements should each patch be?
Thank you for your help. Unless you want the quilt to just be four rectangles, I would suggest picking a quilt pattern and using those fabrics according to the pattern. As an example, you could make with the Fishing Net pattern or Triangle Jitters pattern with that many fabrics. The Medallion quilt in your post was made by international quilt designer, author, educator Gwen Marston.
Credit for this masterpiece should be noted for the readers. Hi Suzy-Q, Excellent website. Have you made a T-shirt quilt? I have found sites that will make one for you but too expensive for me. I have lots of time but no experience quilting. Any tips or knowledge you can pass along would be greatly appreciated. When it comes to T-shirt quilts I have a couple tips. Next, some of those shirts may be jersey or a combination of jersey and cotton. For more info on sewing with stretchier fabrics, check out this post on quilting with jersey.
I looked up a pattern and their Queen size was 88 x 88? I love your Triangle Jitters and for some crazy reason your largest size is Twin where clearly the pattern is screaming it needs to be on my Queen size. However on the pattern info it says it comes with a cheat sheet to make any size. FYI I enjoy your Instagram feeds! Hi Lisa, The cheat sheet is mega simple because it helps you convert the half square triangles into any size. You can use the cheat sheet in the pattern, or any of these three options found here — https: Hi may name is Marilyn and I was trying to find a place that could make me a quilt for a christmas gift this year.
I am not sure where to even begin though and was hoping I could get some ideas and quotas? The quilt I was thinking of is a boise state broncos quilt. Hi Marilyn, I only make custom quilts that are based on my own quilt designs.
If you send me an email, though, I could give you a list of other quilters who may be interested. I want to make my son a quilt for Christmas. I have never made a quilt before, so I am not sure what to do.
He has a queen size bed, but he is also almost, if not close, to 6 feet tall. Hi Patricia, I recommend piecing the quilt yourself and then hiring a longarm quilter to quilt it for you. You would send them the quilt top and backing fabric and then they baste it and use a huge sewing machine to quilt it. The first few years I quilted, I exclusively hired longarm quilters. I still love sending my quilts to get quilted. There are so many good ones out there too. This quilt is an example of an all over quilted pattern done by Crinklelove — https: This Stars Hollow quilt, quilted by See Mary Quilt , is an example of what custom longarm quilting can look like.
I am a beginner, and I signed up for a class where we are making a specific quilt. I chose it because the quilt looks like it uses several skills I need to know. I know I could add more border to the sides, but I think it will be perfect for the sofa in our RV, so all is good. Thanks again for your very helpful chart! That is a quilt for the long and narrow! Looking at the top quilt in the picture at the top of the post, is there a name or a pattern to it?
Thank you; I very much like your website. Last night at the quilt guild meeting our guest speaker, Tim Latimer, was talking about one of the quilt tops he rescued. Then today, here I am looking for quilt demensions, and there it is! Your email address will not be published.
The product is already in the wishlist! Extra Long Twin eg. All the info you need about sewing machines! A Quick Quilt History. You wanted a visual? The Medallion Immigrants to America brought framed medallion style quiltmaking techniques with them.

But, if you are making a quilt which will go on a bed you need to make decisions.
Will the quilt just fit the top of the bed? Will it hang over and by how much? Will the quilt have to cover pillows at the top? Quilt book authors have different opinions on the sizes of quilts for different standard bed sizes. I've gone through a number of quilt books and have collected some of the numbers for you to compare. First, what size are the standard mattresses: Crib mattress sizes vary, check on the new baby's bed size if you can.
Also, don't forget to think about the height of the mattress as well. This will affect how much overhang you choose to add.
Suggested Standard Quilt Sizes for Beds. Our suggested quilt size dimensions are based in most cases on a mattress depth of 15″. No extra length is included for a pillow tuck. Quilting, if moderate to heavy, may reduce the finished size of your quilt by 1″ to 3″ or more and should be considered when planning the finished size of your quilt. Deciding on what size quilt to make is a first step in planning a new project. Wall quilts can, of course be any size you choose. But, if you are making a quilt which will go on a bed you need to make decisions. However, if you are trying to cover a mattress that is a certain size, the dimensions of your quilt will become less loosey goosey and should remain relatively .
