Quilted Table Covers


Quilted Table Covers-1Quilting adds body to table coverings and provides additional protection for table surfaces. The thickness and slight puffiness of quilted table accessories also adds visual appeal. Use quilted fabrics for placemats, table runners and table mats. Finish edges with bias binding.

Pre-quilted fabrics are available, but quilting your own fabric provides the luxury of coordinating colors , and prints, and the economy of making only the amount of quilted fabric needed for a project. The quilting guide foot with the attached guide bar makes the channel quilting process easy.

Lengthen the stitch length and loosen the pressure for even quilting. Begin by stitching the center quilting row,and work toward the sides.

Use polyester fleece or needle punched batting for tabletop fashions. It will retain its shape and body when laundered.
