Does anyone know of a good source to learn how to quilt your own fabrics rather than buying the expensive, already-quilted fabric--for use with bags, etc.? Thank you!

What kind of batting would you use? I don't know anything about batting since I'm not a quilter.

Usually for totes, I would use fusible fleece, or warm/natural batting. I would also a machine quilting class to learn about different techniques of quilting to do your own threadwork designs on the bag.

Thank you! I am making a sewing machine cover and thought the quilting would look nice. I guess I would use the same type of batting.

I have made several machine covers over the years and recently discovered Soft and Stable. It is a polyester covered foam that can be used for purses etc. What I like about it is that it will not slouch over the machine but really hold its shape. I think the quilting in the link below looks fabulous!
