  • Re: quilt batting

    My last paragraph got messed up somehow - I have a new laptop and it tends to skip and jump around while I am typing. Wanted to say that the Quilts for Kids program recommends machine quilting - and lots of it - for kids quilts. They maintain that machine quilting holds up better than hand quilting through multiple launderings. Just a comment - I still

    Hi Lillian: Over the years I have made numerous quilts for babies and my choice of batting for those quilts has "evolved." Back in the 1970s & 80s we didn't have as many choices, and I typically used polyester batting. It was easy to quilt and was much more stable than the cotton battings available at the time. The cotton battings

  • "Thumb" quilting

    I have recently changed from using a quilt hoop to using a floor frame. I have become aware that the ability to quilt away from the body would be a useful skill when using a floor frame. So - do any of you use a floor frame? Do you use your thumb to quilt away from the body? Have any advice to offer? One of my issues is being able to find a thimble

    Jacy - Job well done! I love this quilt. I have always been fond of two-color quiltsand yours is a great example of using only two fabrics and getting stunning results.

    I finished the Chicks and Pinwheels quilt on the morning of July 3 and gave to the newest gg nephew on the evening of July 3. He must have liked it because he fell sound asleep and slept for four hours while the rest of us "partied" around him. This is the only picture I have of this finished quilt, so had to use it for this posting.

    Here is my next UFO project. I made the quilt top shown in the first picture several years ago, but never got it quilted. I had decided it was too "gender specific" for a queen-sized quilt. From the leftovers from the first quilt I had assembled the second, smaller top. My plan now is to take both of them apart, down to the individual blocks
