Hand Quilting


Can quilting paper be used for hand quilting?

Reply

First, I should qualify my answer. I have hand quilted only one wall hanging in my quilting journey, so my experience is limited.

However, I would not want to hand quilt through quilting paper for a couple of reasons...

  • I think the paper would have a tendency to dull the needle making it harder to rock or push through the quilt sandwich.

  • I believe that quilting paper would make it difficult to hoop the quilt and that the hooping action, itself, would cause the paper to shift
I believe that using one of the many quilt marking tools (a blue washout marker if marked before sandwiching or a chalk marker if marked after sandwiching) would make the quilting easier to accomplish.

Readers, what do you think?

Thank you for your question.

Piecefully,
