For making the design wall we need to stick the three layers of fabric that go into the making of the quit batting and fastening them together with the help of safety pins. Using a walking foot we need to stitch on the vertical marked line down the center of the fabric and continue sewing vertical lines out to the rim of the fabric. Once that is done we need to stitch the horizontal lines in the same manner. Once the entire vertical as well as the horizontal lines is sewn we need to straighten and square the edges.
You must agree that there is something vibrant and homely about seeing quilts hanging on a wall. Using wall quilt racks this can be easily done as the online suppliers offer you all the hardware necessary in the form of clamps and you can also have some extra batting pieces to keep behind the quilt in order to thickness to the clamp. Some of the wall mounts display the quilt flat while others do so in pleated or gathered form.
In olden days pioneer families that braved the hostile westward trails in hopes of finding new land and new lives had to stock up on supplies as they prepared for their journeys. They needed provisions that would not only assist with their safe passage but would help them to survive when they reached their destinations. Along with several months` worth of food ammunition and clothing it was recommended that every family pack enough bedding to last for a few years with two or three quilts or blankets per person.
