    Re: 2 1/2 inch batting

    I saw someone making a rug using a jelly roll and skinny strips of batting. Don't remember how she did it but someone here probably knows what it is.

    Re: jelly roll race size

    If you are wanting a twin size quilt, with the math above, you would need to add some borders to provide a drop on the sides and bottom.

    Re: Does a binding need to be bias?

    I prefer wof strips. That said, I remember someone telling me that you should do bias so it would wear better on the edges. For instance, on straight of grain, if a thread wears out that is on the...

    Re: How did that happen??????

    What type of machine was it quilted on? Longarm on a frame, longarm sit down or domestic machine.
  9. Re: How fussy are you about your seams staying flat?

    I shorten my stitch length when I plan on pressing seams open. Learned that from Leah Day.

    I like to use Best Press starch in unscented. I water it down to 4 parts water and 1 part starch. I...

    How about just quilting in sections then join the sections?

    Marti Michel has a book called quilting in sections and shows several ways to quilt and to join the sections together.

    Re: Quilting on your domestic machine

    That's enough to hold it together. I don't remember any batting requiring less than 2 inches apart. I think your serpentine quilting looks very nice. Serpentine stitch is very forgiving, straight...

    Re: Frequent thread changing during quilting.

    I have a longarm so I also quilt all of one color first. If you are using a regular sewing machine, it's a lot easier to change color when you want to. If you are afraid that you might forget to...

    Re: Batting

    I whip stitch batting together for smaller quilts like baby quilts.

    Re: Flannel-backed quilt

    I have backed a lot of quilts with flannel. And like Hailey said, I prewash the flannel. Now flannel will fray a lot, so I use my serger and serge the raw edges before washing it.
