What to wear while Quilting!

Posted by on February 17, 2011

The favorite choice of longarmers to quilt in(besides slippers) is a smock with pockets. Lately there has been a trend to make the smocks from the slippery jersey fabric because threads won’t stick. Some of the machines are styled so that your waistline is rubbing the batting and cotton fabrics drag against the battings. Therefore the slippery fabric is the favorite. Some quilters make ¾ long vests with the jersey and they quilt in good clothes and this length covers their slacks also. Just keep the smock with the machine and you can quickly cover up and sneak in a few minutes  anytime no matter what you have on.

    I had several butcher’s aprons (white & red) from when we had our deli…I took the bottom of the apron front, brought it up to form deep pockets..then stitched up both sides, and made divisions in the front. This holds my supplies, and I can just leave it on the machine when I’m done for the day/evening.
    I like poly/cotton blends in a heavier fabric..like these aprons.
    You can also pin a square of batting to the front of the quilt…and when you snip a thread…put it on the batting…will stay until you remove the batting and put on a new piece.
