    why wouldn't it as long as you use stablizer on the back. I think it would make a great antique quilt.

    If you have a good quality muslin, it would be beautiful.

    Machel will do. Tell Terri thank you also.

    Key4unc I will post pics.

    When I get home tonight I'll start on that and I just might have the hubby do the embroidery while I fix a quilt. I'll be killing two birds with one stone. lol

    Renee, I have used the white coffee filters on SMALL embroidery pieces. Not big ones. I should have mentioned that to Machel when we were talking. I wouldn't use it for an entire quilt, maybe for just a few pieces to get you thru in a pinch.
    But, if I had my choice, I'd use tear away.
