Welcome to the final day of Quiltmaker’s Back to School Party! A quilt isn’t officially finished until it has a label, right? So QM’s Graphic Designer Denise Starck designed a quilt label just for your Frame by Frame quilt. It’s our special thank you for participating in the Back to School Party with us!
Download it, test-print it on paper, then print it onto printer-ready fabric. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to make sure it’s permanent. Fill in the information with a permanent pen such as Micron Pigma .03. Peel the fabric away from the stiffening material. Follow the instructions in our label tutorial for a beautiful, easy finish, substituting your Frame by Frame label for the one shown.
Fairfield has provided three packages of batting for giveaway. They contain crib-sized American Spirit batting described like this:
A balanced blend of 70% Natural Cotton and 30% Polyester, this batting quilts and drapes like cotton, yet resists creases like polyester. Ideal for machine quilting, it is both washable and non-allergenic.
This batting is needle-punched through a light scrim that provides stability, making it a great choice for quilting on a longarm machine.
We’d like to thank Fairfield for their sponsorship. We know that three lucky QP readers will enjoy giving this batting a try. (Giveaway details below.)

Handi Quilter has provided three DVDs entitled Quilter’s Academy Presents David Taylor: Machine Quilting for Beginners.
We’d like to thank Handi Quilter for their sponsorship. Three lucky QP readers will soon be quilting up a storm because of these power-packed DVDs.
For your chance to win, please leave a comment below by midnight, Friday, Sept. 14 answering this question: On a scale of 0 to 5, how would you rate yourself as a machine quilter?
0 means “I’ve never tried it.”
1 means “I’m still a rank beginner.”
2 means “I’m a confident beginner moving toward intermediate.”
3 means “I have considerable experience, I know quite a bit, I still have lots to learn.”
4 means “I feel confident in my machine quilting.”
5 means “I am a very confident machine quilter and have mastered the techniques.”
We’ll pick three winners for batting and three winners for DVDs and post them here next week. The winners have been chosen and will be notified by email. Thanks for your comments, which help us to plan future issues of Quiltmaker.
Thanks ever so much for joining us during the Back to School Party. We’ll have a final wrap-up around the middle of next week.
