Buying quilted fabric is easy but you can't always find the weight and color you want, to say nothing of the expense. Learn to make your own quilted fabric to have exactly what you want and save money!

What you need to create your own quilted fabric

  • Fabric
  • Batting (Read the paperwork that comes with your batting to know how close the stitching lines need to be to stabilize the batting)
  • A backing fabric (muslin is an inexpensive option)
  • Thread - machine quilting thread is best
  • Safety pins
  • Seam guide or template
