Quilting as a popular craft
Quilting involves the layering of three fabrics – a top piece, typically made up of individual squares sewn together to make one large piece, a middle section known as ‘batting’ or ‘wadding’, which can vary in thickness and is stitched into place, and the backing material.
A quilt makes a striking wall hanging, an adorable addition to a baby’s cot, or a cosy piece of bedding. Create a beautiful keepsake for the new baby in the family, or a treasured birthday gift for someone special. Visit Spotlight to gather all the items you need, then browse the vast array of stunning fabrics to pick out the materials you love. Choose the batting or wadding and select a contrasting fabric for a border and the backing and you are on your way to creating a unique and special quilt.
Quilting isn’t new, it has been a popular practice in many cultures around the world since ancient Egyptian times. During ancient times quilts were stitched by hand, but today we have specialised quilting sewing machines to make your quilting project easier.
