    Great question and gosh thank you all for sharing the backs of your quilts. That does help me immensely.

    The backs of MY quilts never look that good, ladies. Maybe some day if I keep practicing.

    please keep posting advice for quilting friendly tops

    Please keep giving us advice to make our tops more quilter friendly. I want to make my tops as painfree as possible for the people quilitng my tops.

    I know that my crumb quilts drive some quilters crazy because there are too many seams and it causes needle and thread breakage so I don't make my crumb blocks as "crumby" as before.

    And when they tell me to square my top before giving it to them, how do I do that?

    This thread is great, I learn easiest by sight and touch, so thank you all. I see gray thread being used - is there a number and manufacturer that you use the most? I've heard about the "magic" gray color and have wondered what it is. I'm also a newbie with quilting. Thank you.

    I haven't heard about the "magic gray color" before and would be interested in learning about that, too! Do I need to go buy gray thread? Sounds like a good reason to go thread/fabric shopping to me!!!
