    For those of you who have made quilts or other projects with this Cotton Theory technique, could you post pictures (front & back) of the items you have made?

    I've made a jacket using her methods and am half way through another one. I like the fact that the jacket is unique and reversible. Will make one of her bags before I do a quilt.

    The only quilt as you go that I have done is the Fun and Done and it is not to hard but your backing becomes your sashing and it can get wonky.
    Having a stiff quilt is what strikes me, too. Even when they demonstrate it on tv, it looks like it would be stiff.

    Yes, I have done table runners, and a jacket using this technique. I really like it. The only downside is all the cutting before you assemble. Turns out great!

    This method uses a ton of fabric and a ton of thread and you end up with a "board"!

    I agree Jacquie. I have made several of them. They take alot more fabric to make. They are very heavy and stiff. They are okay for decorating a bed,, but too heavy for me to sleep under. I did make a table runner with one side Christmas and the other Thanksgiving. It didn't lay really flat, but is okay. I won't make anymore.

    I have some of her earlier patterns and a video I'd like to sell at a very reasonal price, if anyone is interested.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    As others have said, the finished project is quite stiff and heavy. I like them for table runners and rugs, but they are too heavy for me to use as quilts. My daughter, on the other hands, loves the weight so she really likes them. Too each his own. I think the best things to do is to try a small project and see how you like it. It never hurts to try a new technique! Can't wait to see your pictures. Have fun.
