    I've read about this technique before but not much and now I want to try it. My questions are:

    1.) Are there tutorials out there that will teach someone how to do this properly?
    2.) What is the best way to secure it so it doesn't come unwoven or terribly tangled first time I wash it 'cause my quilts get lots of wear and tear on them?

    I did do a search before posting this question and came up empty handed. None of the posts covered what i want/need to know.

    I worked this picture up as a sample to show what I wanted to do .... this isn't the actualy colors I'll use.

    two of my local guilds are having workshops this fall with someone that "invented" this technique (Anna Faustino). I plan to take one of the workshops in October. I think she may have published a book about it...

    I have been wanting to try this. I found a book on Amazon it's called Simply Stunning Woven Quilts. I haven't gotten it yet, but it is suppose to be very good. If you find something on line please post the information as I haven't seen a lot posted.

    I did look here and this is fairly good:

    (I never had experience before) but I think u must fix them on a base like muslin stitch on top and one side, after weave stitch on top sides of every stripe every horizontal and vertical and at last the other 2 ends.

    I think I watched a Fons & Porter show using this technique. I don't really remember that much about it. though. I hope you find what you're looking for.

    Yes, I just watched the show. It's was piecing that looked like a weaved quilt top.

    I made pillows this way, with ribbon on a fusible backing.
    Please share what you learn about weaving a quilt top.

    I think the F&P was a Weaver Fever, unless you're talking about a different show.
