    I just received a copy of Quilt World, July-August 1976. In reading the mag...I found references to nylon quilts. One person was asking for nylons to complete a quilt. Does anyone know what is a "Nylon Quilt" and what did these look like? On page 37, a quilter writes "The picture shows me with my first nylon stocking quilt to my right and above, then two baby quilts. ..." I can't tell what the quilts are. Sounds interesting.....and did these quilts last through the years of use?

    Were they quilts that had nylons as the batting?

    I think they were sort of a "puff" of "biscuit" type quilt with the nylons used for the puffing/stuffing.

    Several items came up when I googled "puff quilt directions nylons"

    or "biscuit quilt directions nylons"

    They look like they would be tedious to make.

    These are the same references that I have come across too. Using nylons to stuff some areas, or to use as the batting. :D:D:D

    Now that's a novel thing to do. I have a huge drawer full of "nylon pantyhose". Which I can no longer wear because they come with two legs, and I only have one...LOL..so I buy knee highs and make sure any skirts, which I rarely wear, are long. I hated to just throw them away, but I sure would like to use that drawer for something else. Sometimes I find good out of only having one leg. And I do joke about it all the time....not much else you can do.

    Katie..have you tried the "thigh high" stockings? I really like those, they go up to the thigh, so nothing hangs out under a skirt, slacks, etc.........and they stay up, too.........I got mine at the Hanes outlet store....
