Applique and pre-quilted fabric
At this stage in my life, I do not intend to purchase any type of long arm quilter, or even a new machine.
However, I do still enjoy applique quilting. Is it possible to purchase (anywhere) pre-quilted fabric beyond the traditional grid quilted material?
Would it be advisable (inadvisable) to applique over the re-quilted fabric even is available?
Thank you for any advice.
I have only seen the pre-quilted fabric in a grid pattern and nothing else.
As for appliqueing over this type of fabric, for me, I wouldn't.
I would be concerned that over time the quilting behind the appliqued shape would show through. If the quilt was laundered with any frequency I think this 'show-through' would happen faster because of the abrasion that happens during washing.
I could be wrong because I've never done this, so...
Readers, if you've appliqued over quilted yardage would you be so kind as to share your results with us. Just use the comments link below.
If you've found quilted fabric with a pattern other than a grid, where did you find it?
Thank for taking your time from quilting to share with us!
Eunice, thank you for your question.
