    This is adorable. I know my mother would love something similar. She adores red and white at Christmas.

    I second the 8 at a time method. I use two 10" squares to make 4.5 unfinished hsts. After cutting but before opening, I trim any extra from the sides. It really speeds up the trimming if done before opening. Very accurate method - only thing more accurate is paper piecing methods such as triangle on a roll or similar. That is good if you only need a couple.

    Wool batting is more expensive, but its worth the extra cost. Heirloom 80/20 is thick, but it pulls apart so easily. So if your quilt ever gets washed, that batting will disintegrate so much faster than a cotton or wool. Iíve been long arming for five years now and Iíve all but banned my customers from bringing in hobbs.You can tear holes in it just by looking at it! You always have the option of using two layers of warm and white, which I guess would be the same price as wool.

    I'm too old to crawl too, so I scooch instead, it's a little bit less painful. I've tried sandwiching quilts on a bed or tabletop, but bending over the project from a standing position hurts my back. I wonder if it would help to get a cardboard upholstery fabric tube and tape or tack the top, back, and backing along one edge to that, then roll it up as you go along, basting or spray adhesiving the layers together, I wonder if the tube or dowel could help to keep the three plys smooth.

    I actually prefer a bit of wrinkle in my quilts though. I just made a block last night tring the quilt as you go method (QAYG), and I'm not sure I like the look of it so much. It is so flat!
