    Hi all, I am scheduled to take a Cotton Theory class on Sat. 22nd. I have been fascinated with this technique ever since I saw their booth at the Houston Quilt Market 2 years ago. What are your opinions, tips, etc. about it. I am really looking forward to the class.

    I've never tried it but have watched the videos on QuitersTV several times. Do they end up feeling stiff? I've never seen one in person.

    I started one of these several years ago at a class. I am almost done. It is in my UFO's, that I plan to work on this year. I used a lot of my scraps.

    I got Cotton Theory Book 1 and 2 for Christmas and I made a table runner. I wasn't thrilled with the result, but I am willing to try again.

    I enjoyed my class. Yes, the final product is a little stiff if you quilt as closely as she says, but it's quilt as you go and it's reversible. Those two things help me put up with the stiffness. Also, since the quilting is a major reason the item is stiff, later on you can quilt your project less densely and it won't be so stiff.

    I prefer quilt as you go, but I haven't done the Cotton Theory method. I saw it demonstrated on a Sewing with Nancy program and it just seemed too involved to me

    I made Attic Windows with a Cotton Theory pattern. I'm not good with colors but I gave it a try.

    I have felt of a table mat after it was made in the booth in Houston but so many people had handled it that it felt heavy but soft. I will find out Sat. in class.
