Machine quilting is becoming more and more popular by the day. Long gone
are the days when you would sit down with a quilting frame and manually
hand sew it until you are satisfied that it is well designed and will
stand the test of time. If you still do use that method then you should
really try machine quilting for size. If you do not like it then it is
your choice, but you owe it to yourself to try out the technology that
may just save you a lot of time and make it more enjoyable as a pastime.
Some quilters love machine quilting, especially those that are new to the
hobby, but some prefer to stick to the traditional methods of quilting
instead. The choice is yours!

Hand-Sewing Vs. Machine Sewing

You have to be creative if you want to create works of art via quilting.
There are various patterns that you can follow but it is much more
satisfying to come up with your own designs and create a style for
yourself. Hand sewn quilts are symbolic of the effort that individuals
are prepared to put into their handiwork and if you make your quilts that
way then you should be proud of yourself. However, you may well have to
wait for weeks and weeks before you can finally add the finishing touches
to one quilt. With machine quilting, however, you can easily create
beautiful quilts in just a few days. Machine quilting is the in thing at
the moment as a direct result of that. A machine can power a needle quite
easily through several layers of fabric and gives you the freedom to
choose the type of stitching that you want without having to manually
learn how to do it!

Machine quilting can offer some distinct advantages over hand sewn
quilts. Firstly, the finished project will look more professional because
it is easier to create straighter edges and basic designs with a machine
than it is when stitching it by hand. Machine quilting also ensures that
the final product is much stronger than a hand sewn quilt could ever be.
The machine will actually pull the material tauter than one individual
could ever do and thus the stitches are guaranteed to have a strength
that only a machine could bring!

Both hand sewn quilt and quilting machines have distinct advantages over
the other, but in the technological world that we inhabit, technology
wins every time. Unfortunately for old arts, if you cannot do it with a
machine then many things would not actually get done at all. Machine
quilting makes life so much easier and the results are just as fabulous.

Many people actually use their quilting machine for therapeutic purposes.
They Love to sit and concentrate on the weaving of various patterns to
allow them to escape from the stresses and strains of modern life. You
can easily spend a good few hours shut away from the rest of the world.
You can present your works of art to your friends and family to enjoy. As
a result of your quilting machine, you can really create something
special and spend your hours in a worthwhile pursuit of comfort and
style!
