    Smile Cotton Theory

    Someone , not sure who was anxiously awaiting to try Cotton Theory. I took a class at my local quilt shop. I loved it, but it takes a lot of planning. Not for a beginner. It is quite ingenious. We made place mats and they are reversible!
    Have enjoyed this website for long time and finally joined--THANKS!

    Thanks Erstan ... I'd googled before, but didn't find that link!
    Somewhat a QAYG technique!

    Thanks UpNorth!! and for the link too!
    I've seen that one, but have been hesitant ... wondering how finicky it is to trim without slicing hte fabric? And how awkward it would be to be sure that all lined up straight and square?

    Would love to hear your thoughts UpNorth ... and from others too!

    Darn they seem to be gone, Let me try to remember. I made a frame the size I wanted my top block to be and one 1 inch larger for the backing I made the backing one and cut out the middle. used that for the batting and front part, you can use any block type but I strip pieced mine. I used a zipper foot to sew close to the batting when sewing them together. I will try to find a pic to post.Name:  fabric for fun and done.jpg
