WOW Looks great, front and back.
I've been looking for a nice pattern to use for all the ties I have collected. This one is a great way to show off the ties designs. This is one of those 'inspiration' ideas from another quilter. Thank you for sharing - it is one of the 'makes me motivated to get going' posts. p.s. - I have the same question as paoberle - what is your choice for a stabilizer?
I love how your design maintains the integrity of the ties.
How beautiful! I am going to start collecting ties. What are you using for the stabilizer? How big are your squares?
I teach FMQ and I like Quilters Dream Batting. they have all different kinds, but I think their poly/cotton 80/20 would be great. it should not shrink or crinkle. that way you get the feel of cotton and sews like cotton, but is lighter and shouldn't shrink more then 10% if any. if you are using a walking foot, make sure to quilt top to bottom then turn quilt and go bottom to top and repeat till finished. if u FMQ try to use the same format to prevent quilt top and bottom from shifting. if it shifts one way, when you turn it, it will shift back. hope this helps.
why not try Soft and Bright by Warm Co. It is the polyester version and I don't get the crinkles.
What an inspiration. Thanks for the pics.
I've made a lot of wall hangings and have never washed any of them. If you feel they need attention you could hang them outside to air or use a vacuum to go over them lightly.
Get a large pan of water and put ice in it and have the fan blow of it and that seems to help me when I want more that just using the fan.
I think any batting will "crinkle" if it's washed. But you probably won't be washing a wall hanging much anyway. One solution would be to heavily quilt the wall hanging so that it didn't crinkle as much.
I don't know if this will help you but here you go. I looked this up on google and got this web site. Hope this helps you. Happy shopping, nancy.

Just beautiful! What is the pattern?
Wow, the quilting is exquisite!
I am going to try this right now. Looks wonderful!
LOVE scrappy quilts, and you have done a great job! It's beautiful....thanks for sharing it.
Hi quilter1: What a beautiful quilt! And all from scraps? How very creative you are!. I am fairly new to sewing with a sewing machine. I am trying to teach myself to use it correctly and effectively. I have felted wool to make hats and mittens, made ugly potholders, draft dodgers, coasters and am currently working on a bath towel mat made from old t -shirt scraps. I have a self healing mat and rotary cutters that I bought myself for my birthday last year. So I used it to cut 1"x4" strips from old t shirts to make my thrifty bath rug. I have to be frugal as I have a mortgage, car payment etc. and am by myself ..So, I told myself I would just use old fabric that i have on hand to make things for now. Your quilt is outstanding! Congratualtions! It is very beautiful. hope someday I can learn to make quilts like the ones I have seen here on the Quilting Board.
I wonder how it would work if you cut your strips on the bias.
