Many of us have seen beautiful quilts that have been hand quilted.  We can only imagine the countless hours that was dedicated for the hand quilting.  The Amish are well known for their handquilting.  I am handquilting a small quilt which I hope to get it done before the year's end.

If you are not into hand quilting, you can also purchase a long arm quilting machine.  There are many out there to select.  Now these machines are expensive.  You can run the gammut in trying to select one for yourself.  There are those you guide yourself or the computerized ones where you just set the program and let it go! 

But if you're like me, you don't have  a long arm quilting machine.  I quilt my quilts on my regular sewing machine.  It takes lots of practice to make sure that your quilting is consistent.  I wear quilting gloves to glide my quilt easily. 

I am including below links from youtube that shows how you can quilt with your sewing machine.  Enjoy!
