Hoop and Quilt* is a new concept in quilting whereby you sew completed quilt ‘pieces’. These pieces contain batting, are quilted in the hoop, and edge finished in the hoop. Once all pieces are sewn and cut out, arrange them into any of a variety of tessellated patterns, then stitch them together.
Depending on your fabric choices, these quilts can be reversible, the same on both sides, different on each side, or use a plain fabric backing for a traditional plain quilt back .
There are NO thread stops, NO thread changes, NO cutting fabric while in the hoop, and NO stabilizer used in the hoop. Cutting out the pieces is as simple as cutting paper along a perforation.
Because these designs sew quickly, with relatively little labor involved, this method is perfect for larger quilted projects.
