    Question cabin lady

    Hello, I have started quilting after years of sewing. I have arthritis in my fingers and cannot quilt by hand but love to do it on my machine. I have made about a dozen so far . King sized backed with fleece and several small lap robes with flannel. I have a top made years ago by a friend's grandmother out of double knit. I am having trouble finding something to back it with. What do you think about a flannel sheet? I love the log cabin pattern and seem to be using it more often than any other. Am going to try to finger quilt a queen size Thangles,Buck a Block. Wish me luck. cabin lady

    Welcome from WI. Log cabin is one of my favorite blocks also cuz you can make so many variations.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I did a double knit quilt years ago and backed it with flannel. It is still going strong but the flannel binding edge is fraying a bit now.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
