Bulky seams and block name

Recommended Posts

I am working on a memory quilt and one of the shirts is silk, so I stabilized this fabric with an iron on interfacing which makes the seams bulky. I keep wondering if I will be able to quilt across any of these seams. Will it be okay if I go slow, or am I risking a broken needle and timing problems?

Should I plan to only quilt in the background area?

Also, what is the name of this block?

You should be ok to quilt through those layers, I would go slow at first like you suggested....but I think it would look great with the background quilted - it would really make the printed fabric stand out....wish I could help you on the name of the pattern - I don't know but it is pretty!  It looks like a large snowflake and would look stunning in red and white too!

Anne, you should be OK, especially if you go slowly through those seams.  T-shirt quilts are stabilized with fusible interfacing, and people quilt those all the time.

 

Sorry I can't help you with the name of that block, either, but I'm sure someone will know its name!

Betsy, that's what I was thinking since I have done a lot of Tshirt quilts too. But the bulk is the worst where those diamonds and star points meet. I have 19 more blocks to make, so I will update later, once I get started on the quilting.

Thanks for the input.
