    Also, how is the texture of it in the quilt and how does it wash up?

    I thought about wool batting, but it can be expensive. Thank you in advance!
  2. Catching Up

    Goodness, I have not posted on here for quite some time. I am still not caught up with UFOs and I seem to create more as I go. I do realize I need to get some of my PIGs completed as well. A friend has put me on a kit/UFO diet for the rest of 2015 and 2016. I need to complete what I have before buying anymore fabric and before starting any new projects. Of course I have figured out a way to manipulate this system, silly me. I have already started some projects and have all the supplies to ...

    Hi. Just joined quilting board and really don't know what I'm doing! Just going for it!
    I recently bought old copies of Irish Quilting. There are a few projects I'd love to make BUT a few issues are missing - could anyone help?
    I need issues 16 & 17 from volume 3 to make the "Quilting is ...." Quilt. I also need issue 2 from volume 2 to make "The Country Club" quilt.
    Can anyone help? Would be so grateful.
