I forget the name of it...ummm trump something....where you stuff bits of stuffing in to puff up certain areas

Trapunto is the name of it.

Question: What do you use for your machine quilting? I'm starting to look into a machine, and am looking for something that can do that Smiley

Great quilting. I love it. Very interesting on so many levels. I've never gotten into all that fancy quilting. The quilting makes the back of the quilt as beautiful as the front. Very good work.  Love it a lot.

They are both beautiful! The quilting is fabulous. I am just finishing up my first quilt; a lap quilt that I started about 20 years ago! Right now I need to layout the backing, batting, and top, and sew on the binding; then of course the quilting. What type of batting would you suggest?

Sorry it has taken me so long to answer the questions.  I'm on a deadline crunch now on a Guild opportunity quilt.

My work is mainly freehand, but I will use any tricks or tools that will help me get the look I'm after.  I own an A1- which is lesser known brand of longarm because the company doesn't advertise as much as APQS or Gammill.  For me, I love the maneuverability of my machine.  I always tell people to test drive all the major brands, it is like test driving a car, one will jump out at you and feel just right.

industrioushead, you can't go wrong to finish a lap quilt with with either  a cotton product or a cotton poly blend from either Quilters Dream or Hobbs.  Warm and white is nice, too.  Of course, wool is lovely to quilt with, but if you wash or dry it with hot water or air is]t will shrink right up.

Backing fabric- here's a tip, using flannel or minkee is more forgiving for your tension, plus it is nice to snuggle up with.

Thanks again!  carla
