What is Long Arm Quilting?
Long Arm Quilting is perhaps the most efficient and technologically advanced method of quilting today.
Machine Quilting using a commercial long arm sewing machine.
Fundamentally different than standard machine quilting on a domestic machine, as in this system the machine head is moved, while the quilt is held stable.
The three layers on the quilt are set up on a roller system, which makes basting unnecessary.
Free motion quilting.
Pantograph or edge to edge quilting is covering the entire quilt with a repeating pattern.
Custom Quilting which is individual designs and details which complement your quilt.
IntelliQuilter is the new standard in computerized quilting.
What is Quilting?
Quilting is the stitching which holds the three layers of the quilt 'sandwich' together while forming a decorative design. Quilting can be done either by hand or machine.
Hand quilting is usually done in a quilting 'hoop' or on a quilting 'frame' using special needles, called 'betweens', and quilting thread. The stitches are usually executed with one hand; the other hand kept underneath the quilt to feel for the needle. A hand quilter prides his/herself on making small, uniform running stitches. It is more important, however, that the stitches be straight and uniform than they be tiny. Either way, these stitches must go through to the backing, preferably to be the same size on the bottom as on the top.
Machine quilting is usually done on a regular sewing machine, using a 'walking foot' to help all the layers feed smoothly though the machine. 'Freehand' or 'free motion' quilting is done with a 'darning foot'. Machine quilters will often match the threads to the fabric that they're quilting. Invisible monofilament thread is used when matching is not possible.
The design that is created by either method is visible as a 'shadow line'. Each method creates a different shadow line. Hand quilting yields a dotted, puckering line, while machine quilting, although faster, gives a straighter, finer line and a harsher look. Hand quilting seems softer and more dimensional than machine quilting. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, in terms of speed and results, and its very vocal advocates.
