Here is a quilt that I made several years ago and tied with a fat batt. It has washed very nicely and we use it every winter here in Wisconsin. Hope it loaded ok. Thought I knew how to do this!

I use this method all the time. The last one fits my king size bed. I usually use the Ilet stitch (makes a little circle) and place it about a fist width apart. Wish I knew how to post pictures. I used 137 diff. batiks and the dbl cut 10" sq. It is bright and warm. I also use a polyester batting instead of cotton as it is fluffier (not sure that is a word but you know what I mean)

That seems like a neat way to do it. I have a couple of great-grandbabies coming next year. Think I'll give it a try.

Boy do all these comments bring back memories. My Granny introduced me to quilting 50 years ago. She would let me cut out all the squares from old wool winter coats. She would sew the squares together and then let my cousin and myself sew the ties thru all the layers. She filled her quilts with goose feathers. We had such fun tying quilts. I am so glad to see many quilters still tie their quilts. They are all beauties. Happy tying!

I did a signature quilt with the eyelet stitch (circle). I think you can see it here in the signed blocks

I was watching the thread about the tied quilt book also. I never saw the title, but would still like to know which one it was. In the meantime, I sewed a disappearing nine patch quilt, added some extra high loft batting, and started tying.
It is cuddly, comfy and cozy! It is a quilt that you can sink into, not to heavy, but still nice and warm. My family prefers the tied quilts, and I love making them!

About 10 years ago , I was in Harlingen Texas . They always had free demos every wed. afternoon. One wed. there was a lady that showed us how to tie a quilt from the inside. I don't think I could explain how it was done, but it was really neat. Hopefully someone reading this thread will know about it , & will be able to explain it.

This one was paper pieced (used phone book pages) using up scraps.
Then, I tied it with crochet yarn. It's backed with an old sheet. The batting is an old flannel sheet. Just the right weight and I don't have to worry about shrinking, as the sheets had been washed a million times!
