Hello. I am very new to quilting. I have finished two very basic top - a christmas tree skirt and a lap quilt.
I have no idea how to quilt them.
I am doing the lap quilt in a class. She is going to teach us how to layer and how to stitch in the ditch. Should I just leave it at that? Or should I do more? Suggestions?
The christmas tree skirt is my own project. I bought batting and basting spray (see how I am already picking up the lingo??? lol). But I am not sure how to quilt it. I was thinking that snowflakes would look cute -but how does one do that? Can you do it by machine? or do you have to hand sew? Do you have to find a snowflake pattern and draw it on? Do frixion pens really reappear in the cold?
So many questions, so little quilting time left before xmas...
(Note -the recipients of these christmas gifts will not expect perfection - they will appreciate the love).
