I think it will be something you will just have to try, to know weather you like it or not. Good Luck!! :thumbup: I know I LOVE it!!

    I use this board sort of like I use the internet; before I purchase something, I like to hear the pros and cons and then decide which way to go. I have saved a lot of money on things because of reviews. I've also bought things that have become a great help because of others opinions. I wanted to buy something that would help me as a cat lover be a little easier. Out of 5 opinions there was one negative. I went with the pro and that product is invaluable to me as a cat owner. On the other hand I saw something, looked at the reviews and didn't find one good one. Didn't buy the product.
    This is the way I'm looking at this Fun&Done. I want to gather information from those who have done it to help with my decision. So far the pros outway the cons. I would have used warm and natural without a second thought if I used this techique but there have been a couple of posts that show this is not the batting to use. You liking the pattern helps my decision as well. The techique seems to be a popular one so far. I appreciate you taking the time to help me. I did a search and the pros and cons are about even. Those that did their own version seemed to have had more issues than those that followed a FUN&Done pattern.

    I took a class for Fun and Done and it's easy to sew but time consuming cutting the fabric and batting. I bought the ruler set and it was much easier using the correct tools. The ruler provides the exact edge width to line up the batting. The ladies that did not buy the ruler set to start with, did after seeing how much easier it was for me to use it. I used poly batting, Fairfield Traditional. I had a lot I wanted to use up and was very pleased with the results.

    Okie, I posted a picture of a door quilt I am doing in panels. it is in the thread titled "whatch workin on" http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-26954-5.htm
    Of course I didn't have a pattern for the layout of the batting etc.
    I figured out how much backing I wanted showing between the panels added my turn down allowance and marked a line on the worn side of my backing fabric as guide line for placing the batting and also to use when sewing the backs together
    When the back were sewn I then pressed the seams on the front side and used Elmers Glue to glue them to the front of the quilt...then used the same decorative sticth I had used elsewehre. I then did a meander stitch over both seam allowance.


    edited to add.....I used Warm & Natural in the door quilt.

Currently, I am in the process of another one, with a different block pattern, and I am using a blanket stitch to finish.
    This is so pretty, you have convinced me to make a quilt using this method. I like the blocks you have used.

    I have to ask. What's fun and done?

    I'm a paper piecer almost exclusively.

    Someone asked about the Cotton method. My sister does that all the time and loves it.

    I don't like it because you always have what appears to be sashing between the blocks and I don't like the look of sashing. I like patterns with a secondary pattern that comes out when the blocks are joined.
