    Libby lives in Houston and I took her Threadplay class at Quilt Festival several years ago. Lots of fun! Someone asked her what batting she used, and she said she got it at Walmart - convenient and they are always open. :-)

You could play for a year with her examples. The book has the usual basics re thread, fabric, machines, needles, tools, stabilizers and construction which I just skim over nowadays, but then you get to the Techniques! Ribbon Illusions, Sheer Stitching, Applique and Embroider! Good instructions, easy to follow. Well worth the $5.99.

    Yep, my DH is the same way, if it is not the nine patch pattern, he thinks it is too modern looking...wish I would have never pointed out the nine patch to him. I do have to admit you could make quilts the rest of your life just using variations of that pattern. Not such a bad thought after all!

    "Quilting On the Go"...is this book teaching the same methods as "quilt as you go"? I have never done this method of quilting & don't really relish making a quilt that you can easily see where blocks were joined together...just am on the fence about purchasing that book. Thanks for your description of the book.
