I wantses ... something

When I offer to make a quilt for someone, the first response is often unintentional panic. You suspect you have opinions, but you don’t know what you want, and you don’t know what to ask for. You probably don’t know names of quilt patterns. You know what you like, but you don’t know how to articulate it.

That’s totally ok. That’s how we start.

The parts

A typical quilt has three layers, like a sandwich: the top, the batting, and the backing. You see the top and the backing, and the top is usually the one with the intricate piecework. The batting is the fluffy stuff in the middle that traps air and makes a quilt warm. Once the three layers are stretched out over each other, you take your sewing machine** and do patterns of stitching over the three layers to attach them to each other. Once you’ve done that, you’ve got to cut away the excess around the sides, like this, to clean up the edges:

1 November 2009 - 7:32pm - The three layers are now anchored together with overall stitching (the quilting).  Next task: cut the quilt free of the excess batting and fabric, then close off (bind) the edges. cnaHow it comes back from the quilter’s
1 November 2009 - 7:37pm - Carefully slice the quilt free of the excess batting and backing, then it's time to make up long strips of fabric to bind off the raw edges. cnaFree at last! Free at last!

** Some people do this by hand. I don’t. I’m not that crazy.

But that leaves the edges open and raw. That’s not ok. Next I cut out a very long and thin strip of fabric, called the ‘binding.’ I sew it first, by machine, to the front of the quilt…

27 May 2011 - 8:27am - Here's what the binding looks like when it's halfway done. The first step: take a very long strip of fabric, and fold it in half lengthwise. You line up the raw edges of the fabric with the raw edges of the quilt, like you see here, and sew the binding to the quilt. 

For step two, you fold the binding over the raw edge, and hand-stitch it to the back of the quilt. Et voilà, nice clean edges on both the front and back!

This quilt is Sunfish: domesticat.net/quilts/sunfish cnaHow the binding starts

and then hand-sew the other side invisibly to the back, to close off that open edge. It can either match the fabric near it, accent it, or contrast against it:

9 September 2010 - 7:42pm - Here's a sample of what the binding looks like. cnaBinding example
27 May 2011 - 8:28am - This fabric (a gorgeous blue stripe from Mark Lipinski's 'Califon' line) had long stripes running in one direction. I cut the binding strips crosswise to the pattern, so the finished binding would have lots of little stripes. I used the same fabric for the backing, and you can see it in this photo.

25 February 2011 - 2:26pm - John Wilson got this photo that pretty much sums up my life. That's me, in my usual spot on the couch, working on binding a quilt. Nearby are my laptop, phone, thread, remote control, and empty ice cream container.

More about the quilting!

The word ‘quilting’ is deceiving, because it can mean one of two things. If you’re being totally strict, it should only refer to the stitching that runs through all three layers of the quilt to hold it together (as opposed to just ‘sewing,’ which is what you’re doing when you’re assembling a quilt top). In this strict sense, the quilting does indeed make a difference to the finished quilt. You have color choices here, too! You can choose a thread that blends into your fabric, or one that contrasts strongly.

18 August 2010 - 7:03am - Nothing like popping into the kitchen the next morning, looking at last night's work, and saying ... yes. That will do.

Each plate will have a double line of quilting, one line each ¼' inside and ¼' outside the inner ring. I'm also tracing each petal roughly ¼' inside each seam. Later, when more of the quilt is stable, I'll go back and add the decorative motifs in the empty circles inside each plate, and in the empty spaces between each plate. 

Right now? This is triage. This fabric is strong but it IS nearly 80 years old. I don't want to handle it any more than necessary until it's got the extra strength of the batting and backing helping it out.

What is this quilt? Why am I being so careful? See domesticat.net/quilts/primrose or today's blog entry, domesticat.net/2010/08/hello-pastel-unicorn cnaMorning after? No hangover.
19 October 2010 - 12:20pm - A slanted shot of the quilt as it's ready to be packed up.

Blog entry: domesticat.net/quilts/chaos-theory cnaSlant shot into the goal

I can also choose how dense the stitching can be. There are tradeoffs, of course: a more densely quilted piece will be stronger, sturdier, and last longer – but it won’t be as soft. A more loosely-quilted quilt will feel immediately softer, but may need to be treated with more care decades down the line. I quilted the hexagon quilt pretty closely (about 1” apart) because the fabrics were antiques, and I wanted to provide those fabrics as much stability as possible. I quilted Crayon Box a bit more loosely because I wasn’t quite so worried about it.

10 November 2010 - 6:22pm - Tenzing is determined to stay on this quilt. Sometimes it is easier to
just work around him. cnaNot sure who is winning but I don’t think it is me
  6 June 2010 - 4:26pm - I discovered I enjoyed loops when I realized they didn't have to be single loops. I could double or triple them, double them back upon themselves, and get something that pleased me more. cnaDetail: quilting patterns

I try to make all my quilts machine washable. You’ll notice that all of these quilts have a nice, smooth top to them; when you wash them for the first time, the batting contracts about 3%, giving you that crinkled look that most people associate with quilts.

Backings on-hand

I always keep a few large swaths of fabric on-hand for backings. They’re usually notable for one reason or another:

Old or new?

Do you like rescued antiques or do you want something new? There’s no right or wrong answer here. Some people love the idea of salvaging an old quilt, but some have specific color/pattern wishes that can’t be satisfied by anything but an original. Both are totally okay!

Got a time period you love?

If you want something that looks very old, but don’t know quite what you want, visit reproductionfabrics.com and poke around. This section isn’t intended to be a definitive What Quilts Were Like At This Time reference but instead give you some guidelines.

Much of the humor in this quilt can't be seen from this angle -- you don't see all the weird and funny pieces (pink and black skulls! backing fabric of cartoony bugs!) but this at least lets you see the overall effect. A traditional quilt done in as non-traditional a manner as possible!

If you are new to this project, this is a salvaged/rescued quilt top, circa 1880s-1890s, that needed significant repair work when I bought it.

It will be finished with materials appropriate to the period: cotton batting, and a double-pink 1800s reproduction fabric for the backing. Its final destination is a friend in Oregon, who plans to love it and use it, not store it away. cnaFlickr

Things I haven’t tried yet

Make it personal

if I’m going to do this, I’d rather tailor it to your interests. Don’t assume I know. The quilt fabric world has a lot of crazy stuff in it. Here are some ideas:

  • old clothing with sentimental value (preferably cotton, but I can work with poly-cotton blends) to be cut up
  • Color scheme? bright colors? dark and intense colors? pastels? scrappy and random? a specific color combination?
  • Do you like things that look old, or things that look modern?
  • Any particular ethnic style that appeals? Some options: French country (soft reds and tans), Japanese, Chinese, Scandinavian, Russian, African wax batiks, Southwestern
  • Do mathematical tiling quilts appeal?
  • Favorites: sports team, color, cartoon character, city, movie, TV shows, holiday, hobby?
  • Flowing curves, straight lines, or something else?

Lastly, a word about Felis catus

Quilt cat #1: Tenzing was my quilt buddy … whether I liked it or not. Edmund didn’t give a toss about snuggling on quilts, but every single quilt I worked on during his life was ‘pre-loved’ by Tenzing. This is also why I wash every quilt I do – at least once, sometimes twice or more – to make sure there are no issues. If you or anyone in your household are cat-allergic, let me know and I’ll take extra precautions to keep my ‘helper’ off of your quilt. If you are severely allergic, I’ll wash your quilt twice and then take it to the dry cleaner’s immediately before sending it to you, just to be sure that you won’t have a reaction. Here’s why:

13 June 2010 - 7:04pm - 'I don't care if you're fixing popped seams. I'm trying to SLEEP here, woman. Don't you understand I'm a geriatric rat bastard of a cat and I can sleep wherever I want?'

'Move, Tenzing.'

20 March 2009 - 6:59pm - This particular spot on the couch is apparently going to be Tenzing's roost on every quilt I make. I've decided not to fight it this time. I'll be done soon enough. cnaQuilt sprint, night #4: quilt kittens
7 January 2010 - 8:09pm - He does SO love snoozing in the quilt fabric. cnaThanks, Tenz.
2 March 2010 - 7:56pm - I'm keeping the quilt. He's practicing sleeping on it while I make it. After all, the warm tones complement his fur so nicely. cnaI’m practicing, Mom.
14 June 2010 - 6:08pm - Answer: wash the quilt. Put it on the table where the cat wants to be, and drape a two-yard piece of unbleached muslin over it. The cat thinks he's ruining your quilt and you get some peace while you work. cnaCompromise is the key to not killing your cat.
13 June 2010 - 7:04pm - 'I don't care if you're fixing popped seams. I'm trying to SLEEP here, woman. Don't you understand I'm a geriatric rat bastard of a cat and I can sleep wherever I want?'

4 August 2010 - 6:42am - Tenzing has declared 'Kissing Thief' as his, his, his. The funny part? For once, it's actually true. It's a scrappy quilt of beloved blues and greens to keep his omnipresent kitty fur off of the love seat. 

So he can shed on this one as much as his little kitty heart desires. cnaIronically enough, this one’s ACTUALLY his.

20 February 2011 - 4:29pm - Tenzing is a PRO at sleeping on quilts-in-progress. You can just barely see my sewing machine in the background. 

It's a ritual. He sleeps on every quilt. Every single one. If it's not soft and warm enough for Tenzing, it's not soft and warm enough for people I like.
