    I am in the process of making one. It is easy to do and goes together quickly once you have all the fabric cut. I am using bamboo batting and it is great, not too stiff.

    I have learned more from this quilting group than you could ever imagine. More than I have from the quilting bee I belong to or anything else. I don't remember how I found this group , but I love it. The tips to websites and sewing tips. Better than anything I have ever imagined. Thank you ladies. Happy New Year and God Bless. Hope He blesses our country too. It really needs a blessing with those in Washington. Proud to know all of you. If any of you know of a long arm for sale please let me know. Thanks

    I have some cotton fleece and was wondering if that would make a good batting for the Fun&Done patterns. It says heavy weight but it not nearly as heavy as the warn and natural. I know they are different fabrics but I just trying to get you to visual the weight of the fleece. It white, it doesn't look like the fleece you make the tied blankets, etc our of. The feel is not as soft as that. I have 6 yds of this and hoping it will work as a batting for a lap quilt. But, I don't want to waste my time if someone has knowledge that this is not a good thing, I appreciate any advice you can give me.

    If it is the same cotton fleece I am thinking of I have used it in table runners and I think it would be fine to use. Just make a square using this batting and see what you think.

    I had some blocks that I put together using this method after I saw your post. It was so fast. I am Project Linus Coordinator for our area and this method will be a blessing for my blanketeers. I cut batting and backing without a template, but made a cardboard frame to help center block and batting on the backing. Worked great...cheaper than the template, which limits block size and costs nearly $20!! Thanks so much for the post.

    The thicker the batting the harder to join the blocks because you need to sew close to the blocks when joining.
