LOL I'm as surprised as ya'll are! I never thought much about every detail of a quilt but this one is for my father in law whom I love dearly. I used high quality fabric, thread, took my time with my piecing (still not perfect tho! :shock: ) I was going to use warm and natural batting but Hancock's was out so my other choice was Hobb's wool. It was 37.00$ for a queen size so I don't want to mess it up. It says 4" max between stitching lines, does that mean that I need to cross hatch or something on the 2-1/2" border? I stitched down both sides but now I'm concerned about it seperating lenghtwise, can that happen or am I safe?
