Roesia Merle. Quilt Display. August 30th , 2017.
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.
A portable quilt display rack is the ideal choice for flaunting any sizes of quilts, backdrops, and other hanging wares during trade show events. It`s sturdy, versatile, compact, lightweight, and very handy. For exhibitors who are searching for a fully functional product, a portable quilt display rack might be just the solution fit for your needs and budget. A portable quilt display rack is a really great investment. Why?
Depending on the size of the design wall, we need to buy fabric for both the front and the back, and cut it to the preferred size. The fabric used at the back can be the same that is used in front. We must keep in mind not to use too heavy a fabric. If the design wall is big enough to require seaming together the fabrics, using a flannel sheet can be considered. It is a good idea to pre wash all fabric used. Polyester is not a first-rate option for a design wall since it tends to have a good deal of loft and pills. A total cotton batting is the best choice. Quilts made with cotton batts are popular all the year round. They do not hold heat and make you feel cooler during summers. At the same time, they absorb and trap air and keep you warm on cold wintry nights.
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.
How does the story of each unique quilt begin? As a quilter commences her initial design work, thoughts grow and develop from the design board to the sewing machine. Each of her children`s quilts tells its own story, as the pieces are cut from carefully chosen fabrics, sewn carefully into patterns. The story`s is illustrated through color, design, and texture. Whether the quilter has a special child in mind, as she sews and quilts, or if the quilter is designing and quilting for the love of her art, either way, the children`s quilts come to life step by step.
