    I was just asking as they carry both at the one LQS and said that if it was done on a long arm there wasn't as much issue with just the bamboo, but done on the domestic machines that they prefered to use the blend. I don't get to that LAS very often, though next time I am in maybe I will talk more if they are not busy.

    I was wondering about that too Elle. It's hard to see in the pictures what everyone has done.

    I haven't either and wondered the same thing. Do you think Jane used cotton batting? Also, do you think it was a quilting bee that worked on it? I was just thinking that the other day...perhaps she had some help on this monster of a quilt!

    Elle...I'm thinking that the quilt will call for some custom quilting in a lot of the blocks...but QID will look really good for a lot of them too. I'm going to have to look at some pics and do alot of zooming in to see the quilting on some already done.

    here's a link to some really good pics of the original jane quilt - you can see some of the quilting that she did.

    http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...75149609YcCYgd


    then as far as what people do today, its more of a custom thing to each block, some SITD, geometric quilting in the triangles, etc.

    and then there's this one which was a huge hit at houston quilt fest

    Thanks so much for sharing these pics Klue. I really liked the one from Houston Show. The borders were really different. Quilting was great! Hugs

    i agree, i love the idea of quilting the triangles instead of doing the piecing work. its a nice play from the people who don't do triangles at all.

    the quilt was pieced by someone and then she sent it to a professional long arm quilter to be quilted.

    i think thats the same as SITD, which is stitch in the ditch. its when you do the quilting in the seams ditches.

    While we are talking quilting, and lots of people worrying about not being able to get this monster under a domestic machine and not being able to afford to have it professionally quilted, what is wrong with quilt as you go? I think this is what I might do, providing I have the time

    Think that could be a plan, however although I tried this method I wasn´t happy with the results, so perhaps you could give us a tute on the way you do it, Please.

    I like the "QID" better than "SITD". To me quilting sounds more professional than just stitching. So there is others of us that are confused :) .

    I talked to my LQS (local quilt shop) and they can order a bolt of Kona Indigo Blue for $95. I get 20% off and if they honor my local guild membership, I should get another 10% off on top of that. Thankfully they know me and will let me pay a little bit at a time. When I mentioned I needed a bolt of fabric for the background to hubby, I thought he was going to have an aneurism right then and there. (We need an icon of a smilie hiding under a chair!) According to him, there isn't a quilt out there that requires that much for background. Then he told me the king sized quilt I have on the guest bed only took about 6 yards of fabric to make. ...Um... ROFLMBO!!!! I tried to patiently explain it had more like 20 yards of fabric in it. All I got was a glare; at which time I retreated to my quilt room for some therapy.

    So how did he come up with THAT amount? Maybe - if he doesn't get overly ----
    he could "explain" it to you ????

    i agree, i think QID sounds better and its faster to type out, one less letter - and i'm sure you guys all know NYers like to move fast.

    he sounds like my DH. i can't tell you how many times he says "you take perfectly nice fabric and cut it up and then sew it back together. why can't you just use the fabric how it is?"

    thats a good idea, i plan on showing it at our guild shows but i'd never win for it any way so i could do the quilting this way.

    i'm going to dwell on this one and think about which quilt as you go method i'd like to use.

    I couldn't believe he even said that. He used to help build industrial factories and the equipment involved requires very accurate measuring so he should be able to look at a quilt and know how much the fabric measures and break it down...but maybe he isn't making the connection between wood or metal and fabric. Got me how he came up with that number. I don't think it helped that he was upset and I laughed in his face. I couldn't help it though. It just sounded so outrageous that I had to either laugh or gape at him stupidly.

    Klue, what is a gal to do but love them anyway. :wink:

    LMBO!!! Oh Sweety, how true! We just won't tell them that. Mostly because they might feel the same way about us. :lol:
