I am going to jump on the wagon, and start this discussion, which someone suggested. Let's share our tips and hints for CUTTING, SEWING & QUILTING.
I do that, but on the one I'm quilting now, I left some of the batting showing and it is fraying a bit--wool. The quilt is so beautiful, PQ! I really regret not having done mine in 30's fabrics....maybe the next one, LOL.
Love the quilt, PQ! Can't wait to see it finished!
I learned this tip by experience after making my first quilt. On my second, a wall hanging, I folded over and basted the edges, only to take it to a WIP guild meeting and have someone ask my why I had bound my quilt before quilting it. Guess I'd done too neat a job!
PQ - That is such a beautiful quilt. I know your daughter will cherish it always. I would like to do a DWR someday.
Gorgeous, PQ! I have heard you talk about this quilt, but I haven't seen it yet. It is simply amazing! I love 1930's prints and would love to make a quilt filled with them, but I am not up for the DWR, yet, anyway. Great job and great tip about the batting!
