What type of things can I make with quilting?
There are many different things that can be made with quilted fabrics. Quilting is the process of sewing two or more layers of fabric together to make a thicker, padded material, usually to create a quilt or quilted garment. Typically quilting is done with three layers: the top fabric or quilt top, batting or insulating material, and backing material for the reverse. If you are new to quilting, you might want to start with something fairly small like a potholder or placemat, but there is no end to the items that can be quilted, from making padded coat hangers to bedspreads, Christmas stockings to bedspreads, and bookmarks to table runners!
What else is included in the range?
You can personalise quilted items and other sewing projects with iron-on names or initials, so take a look at the great alphabet options available in this range. Kids will be delighted with a T-shirt with their name on, or a pillowcase or even a sign for their bedroom door - the options are endless!
What else should I keep in mind when quilting?
Make sure that you have thought out what you want the finished design to look like, and that you have enough material to finish your project, so that you can select the different materials to combine to get your desired effect. Many Flat Fats (pre-cut pieces of material measuring approx. 50 x 52 cm) are sold in bundles of coordinating colours or designs, or will have different fabrics in similar colour combinations to give a stylish and professional finish. Many quilted items are further enhanced with embroidery, ribbon, beads or other embellishments, all of which you can find here at Spotlight.
