Hey loves! Good to meet you here. We are very happy to be able to share new patterns with you. Are you taking the time to practice? I know that during the week it gets much busier, but you can take the opportunity to read and understand the patterns. Like the one we brought you today, the Starburst Quilt. Each pattern has a different charm, and in this one the highlight is the colors we chose. 

It’s a fun, colorful quilt with a pretty amazing pattern. Before we learn the pattern, let’s go over some very important tips that make all the difference when it comes to quilting? Your quilt top is likely to get crumpled with use whilst you piece it together. Give the quilt top, backing fabric and batting a good press before basting to help make sure that everything lies flat. 

It’ll make the next stage a whole lot easier. The last thing you want when quilting is puckered fabric. Take the time to baste your quilt sandwich well to make sure that all three layers glide through the machine smoothly. This one is often up to personal preference, but we like to spray enough our quilt sandwiches. This way your layers are less likely to shift and there are no obstacles in the way when all you want to do is quilt a simple straight line without interruption.

The general rule of thumb is that you should change your needle every 3 full bobbins or at least once every project. Make sure your machine has a nice, fresh needle before you get quilting for perfect and professional stitches. Don’t rush the quilting process, slow and steady wins the race! Sewing at a medium pace will ensure your stitches are even and your fabrics don’t pucker under the pressure of your walking foot.
