    Yes Terri, you will stitch over where you used the water soluable (but inside the line) to permanently hold the Poly AND the regular batting. Now...if you'd like to stop on by when you go to Lauren's...well...my sewing room IS my guest room and its available! Come on!

    I want to make sure I have this correct. When you stitch with the water soluble thread, you are only stitching the batting and the quilt top. Then after trimming the batting, you sandwich your quilt to do the final stitching with regular thread. Do I have that right, Patti? I really want to learn how to do this.

    Thank you for a great tutorial. I didn't know how this technique was done, it's something I can use on a quilt I'm doing at the moment.

    That is the simplest explanation I have ever read. I have avoided it because directions in magazines always sound so complicated. I did not know there is a water soluble thread. It's true one is never too old to learn.
