I have been trying to quilt for about a year now. I have done two tops(lap and queen size) but find that having them quilted is very expensive. I would love to hand quilt them myself but I have no idea how I would start. Would it be best to use just straight lines for the quilting pattern? Do i draw the pattern on the quilt? Would I use invisible thread or one that shows? Do I need a frame? I've read several instructions on how to do it but I would feel better if I got you guys point of view on it.
