Quilting is the art of stitching two or more thicknesses
of fabric together in a planned design. A padding is
stitched to the underside of the fabric to produce a
soft, puffed effect that is becoming to some wearing
apparel and to many fabric furnishings.

Preparing the Fabric

Baste a light padding of cotton flannel, synthetic quilt

batting, sheet wadding, or a lightweight wool interlin­

ing to the underside of the fabric. When using sheet

wadding, first back it with voile, batiste, or net to pre­

serve the sheet wadding through wear. Baste the lay­
ers of fabric and padding together on the lengthwise
and crosswise grains.

Basic Procedure

• Draw both threads under the foot and diagonally

across feed to left.

• Position the needle, lower the foot and start stitching.
