    Homespun nightmare

    This is the quilt I had so many problems with because the homespun material. I recieved many helpful hints on how to go about making a quilt with this material, and I am very grateful. My son got the quilt he wanted and I am finally finished with it.

    Homespun is awful to work with, I agree but you did a great job and I like it.

    Good job taming your frisky fabric! Homespuns sure like to shift and fray don't they?

    long ago, I bought some. I gave it away before using it. didn't like that much of a crinkled look.

    Very nice quilt ! I've worked with homespun too, and it can be a bugger, but I love the primitive look.
