    One of my LQS had a demo. and a 15% discount on the books etc. I loved the demo, bought everything I needed because of course I was getting a discount and no shipping/handling etc...and there it sits waiting for me to get around to trying it. I will be interested to hear what others think.

    I made a tote using the Cotton Theory....actually took a class to learn how to do it. The class was wonderful as I left with the tote done! Now, would I use that method again or with a quilt....probably not. I can't imagine how heavy a quilt would be using this method as the tote is even heavy. It was fun and I would recommend making a tote first to just learn the technique, but like I said, it's not a technique I would use over and over again.

    I made an appliqued block quilt with it and it was fine. Have to be careful of shifting with all the bulk. I think I used cotton batting and if did it again I would use poly batts.

    I just took a class at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo and we made a wall hanging. I enjoyed it and I am sure that I will do it again.

    I bought the book and tried it but did not care for it myself. The book is just setting on the shelf I'm too busy to give it another try.

    I made a quilt. My sewing leaves a lot to be desired but I enjoyed the process. Here's a link to the picture...

    I have made placemats and a tote using this method. I liked the results but have not made anything larger.
