    So, I went to a quilt show yesterday and found the pattern. I'd been looking at all the beautiful ones that those of you here have made. I just have to have one.

    I didn't buy the hard wooden bottoms they were selling for the bags. Is it necessary to use one of those?

    I'm just curious - I haven't even checked out the pattern yet to see what I need or how complicated it is. I tend to just jump right in.... :roll:

    Thanks for any suggestions or help you guys have on this!

    I use a double layer of plastic canvas covered with the lining fabric for the bottom of mine

    Plastic canvas that is used for needlework with yarn?

    Yep, plastic canvas used with needlework yarn. It is cheap and easy to use. I only use a single layer.

    That's exactly what I plan to do! I'm assuming it is holding up well?
