Now that we have the quilt layered and pinned securely, it is time to begin quilting. The first quilting I like to do, when possible, is one or two securing rows through the quilt, just to help prevent the layers from moving. We will start by stitching two lines through the center of the quilt. I will use Stitching in the ditch (also known as Ditch Stitch quilting) so let's see how that is done first.
Probably the biggest question about quilting your quilt is how to quilt it. There are so many designs and quilting techniques that sometimes it is really hard to decide on what would look best for your particular quilt.
Welcome back to our quilt making lesson. So what comes next? Yes you guessed it, it's time to add a border. On my quilt, I'm going to add one dark border. You may want to add more to make it bigger.
