quilting with denim

Recommended Posts

I have a friend that has asked me to quilt a top that has lots of denim in it. Any suggestions on doing this on my Mille? I have never quilted anything with denim and I don't know how the tension does or anything. Also is a 110/18 needle going to be large enough? 

Thanks in advance!!

Cyndi, I have never done anything with denim, either, but if I were you, I would definitely use a large needle and go rather slowly, as those seams are bound to be thick.


I'm sure someone with actual denim experience will add their advice, too.  Please let us know how it goes, and post pictures when you're done!
