    Here's the results of my attempt of Betty Cotton's technic. I think some libraries have her book. I enjoy doing a variety of types of quilting so I've only done the one Attic Windows, so far.

    Do a search on the board for cotton theory, and check out Has anyone done Cotton theory. That person has done attic windows using this theory...it will give you an idea of final results.

    I watched the video. I think it was on Sewing with Nancy show.
    That is harder to do than the Fun and Done. Your backing is the sashing with the fun and done and it is not a double sided quilt, your back is all one fabric that is brought to the front and sewn down. So no cutting for sashing strips.

    Hello Butterflywing
    I do not know if you have solved the problem to finding out how the Betty Cotton theory quilting is done. I am new to this website and also a qualified instructor of Betty's. For your first project I would not recommend flannel fabric. Each block is quilted leaving one inch around the block free of batting. It is a good idea to use Betty's batting as you can steam it with an iron and it adheres to the fabric. Quilting is easy then without pins. I did post one picture of the start of a placemat and I can post more too. But I will leave this note for now as I do not know if you already worked out how it is done. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Sewing with Nancy and free. Still it's a puzzle to me. I think there is another with Nancy. Do you use google? I find it the best search engine.
