Some of the best materials to consider using for your quilt are:
- Quilter’s weight cotton
- Cotton decorating fabric
Chat with a local quilt maker to discuss your options, request price estimates and get more advice for your quilt.
Depending on the quilt’s size, intricacy and details, it may take less than a day or several weeks (or longer) to make a quilt. If you’re thinking about hiring a quilter, ask them to estimate how long it could take to finish your quilt.
Quilting isn’t a skill that you can learn overnight. It all depends on how often you practice and if you’re taking lessons. If you don’t have the time to learn how to quilt, you can hire a quilt maker to make you a custom piece.
