Step-by-Step Texture Quilting - Christina Cameli

thinking texturally

Quilted textures have a way of drawing you in and making you want to touch the quilt. They bring out the best in the piecing. The play of shadow and light delights even nonquilters, grabbing their attention and inspiring appreciation for the skill involved.

Quilting takes a flat piece of fabric or patchwork and breathes depth into it, bringing it into the world of sculpture, a soft bas-relief. The dimension in a quilted piece invites us to look deeper, to move closer, to wrap up and enjoy.

I’m going to share with you what I’ve learned about quilting textures that delight both eye and hand. Included are many designs that you can recreate, and I hope you enjoy them. I hope even more that this book gives you the tools to understand your quilting choices at a deeper level, and to have the confidence to create the quilting designs that will work best for your projects. I can’t teach you perfect quilting. In fact, you’ll see how imperfect my quilting is as you go through the book! The magic of texture can still shine through. I hope you try it yourself!

Instead of focusing on the thread, I notice the places that the thread is and isn’t. The places that are not quilted are important and define the texture that is created. I consider these designs texture-based designs.

A texture-based quilting design

Some of my work is more textural and some is less. I perceive line and texture as opposite ends on a spectrum in quilting.

A leaf design with little texture

A leaf design with more texture

A leaf design with pronounced texture

Every quilter will have a different range on this spectrum that feels interesting to them. In this book we’ll focus on the texture end of the spectrum. If you’re used to thinking in drawings with your quilting designs, this might feel a little strange. I encourage you to try stitching some of the designs and see how you like them. To begin, let’s explore some concepts.


One of the most powerful ways to create texture in quilting is by echoing. When one line responds to the line before it, mimicking
