I could sit and explain, but I would take up alot of this space, There are several books listed, under this topic if you'll scroll back to pages 1 and 2. They explain the best way, One of the authors is Cotton and she has a techniqe that can explain it. Please check out the books, also see if any of the books listed are at your local Library,
Happy Quilting

Several different methods were demonstrated on a Simply Quilts episode


There are probably a bazillion more methods in use out there. I use a few different variations of the SQ demonstrations. The method I choose depends on whether or not there will be sashing between the blocks, whether or not I want sashing to cover the seams on the back, finished size, type of batting I plan to use, etc, etc, etc.

I never hand-stitch any of the closing seams. Waaaaay too much like work. Why stitch by hand when you can use an embellishing machine stitch? Faster and fancier - like you "planned" it that way. LOL

I'd be interested in trying that technique. What books did you buy?

Betty Cotton uses the 80- 20 batting because the 20% poly helps keep the top and bottom pieces sandwiched together when ironed before stitching them. Makes it easier to handle when working with the top, batting and the bottom pieces all at one time. The iron melts the poly just enough to keep them together while they are being handled. It looks good when finished. Her book is really good with the directions too. Hope this helps explain why she uses that batting. I've done a few of her projects in her book and also took her class at Sewing with Nancy. Lot's of fun.

Hi Norma, I would love to have the names of the books. I really enjoy hand sewing and if I could do my quilting in this manner I thinks it would be a real bonus for me. Thanks a lot. Judith

I don't know if she "invented it", but I remember seeing Georgia Bonesteel on TV and her books on lap quilting. Here is the part of her site which has all her books for sale http://www.georgiabonesteel.com/store.html I did a small lap quilt a long time ago and was easy to do and the results were good, although I still prefer "regular" quilts. The lap quilting was neat because you could take it anywhere and be able to quilt.
