    i agree it's great stuff for machine quilting. well worth the price. i get several lap quilts' worth out of each can.

    just don't try to hand quilt through it. especially if you're using cotton batting. OY!!!

    like trying to quilt through clay.
    :shock:

    LOL... I'm lazy and into instant gratification. I learned how to hand quilt, but MUCH prefer the quickness and serendipity of machine quilting. I even used it to spray down tissue paper that I had done calligraphy on for my niece's baby quilt and then filled it in with stitches - it came out really nicely (i was shocked... lol)

    Please, tell us more about the sprayed down tissue paper technique. It sounds mighty interesting... 8)

    If you're asking about Kathy's avatar, then yes ... it's a real chicken sitting VOLUNTARILY in the bowl.

    HI--CAT HERE

    Quilting as you go has been around for a long time--just read about making a quilt in the 1800's by sandwiching blocks and machine or hand quilting them than sewing the binding around each one, when all blocks were done they slip-stitched them together--presto all done. I thought this was a great idea as now days with our great sewing machines and the many stitches at our beck and call we can secure those blocks together very quickly---what do you think.--CAT

    PS--woke up to snow again this morning--not much though

    Welcome Cat. I have a regular sewing machine so that all I do is quilt as you go. Works for me. Less material to pull and tug on.

    I found a QAYG history and instructions that are easy to follow. http://www.secretsof.com/content/194

    I've designed a quilt top for Texas Bluebonnets and was wanting to work on it while rock hunting in New Mexico in August (lots of driving involved - or in my case, riding - there are times that it is really nice to have a husband that wants to do all of the driving). Will be glad to share the pattern with anyone who wants it. It's in Microsoft Excel format - no instructions on piecing, just the graphs.
    Couldn't figure out how I was going to be able to quilt in the truck until now. Thanks, ladies! :D
