(Guide and Expert Tips!)
Velvet is not a typical fabric used in quilting. It is hard to sew because of its slippery texture. So, if you’ve been finding it difficult to quilt with velvet fabric, you are not alone.
With a few modifications to the regular quilting process, you can make this curious fabric into a quilt without too much difficulty.
By doing this, you will pre-shrink the material and make it easier to work with. Pre-washing also removes excess dye, so the colors do not bleed while you work.
After washing the fabrics, cut and attach the pieces of the back quilt. In this project, you will make the back quilt from the cotton print fabrics.
After sewing the cotton pieces together for the back quilt, press the entire panel with a pressing iron to remove creases. Then press the seams open.
