Batting is the magic in the middle of any quilt. Kelly begins by going over the key characteristics. Then she walks you through the fiber types available, showing both raw batting and quilted samples. You'll perform a simple test before you make your quilt to ensure it's right for your project.

2. Basting Methods

There are several ways to baste a quilt, so how do you know which one to use? Kelly explains, discussing the pros and cons of four common methods. She also demonstrates pin-, thread- and spray-basting, plus how to use fusible batting.

3. Marking Methods

3. Marking Methods

Explore tools that help you mark your designs before you quilt. Learn how to use a pounce pad, stencils and a variety of marking pens. Then, look at hera markers and adhesive templates, both of which can be used after your quilt is already basted, and won't ever leave any stray markings.
