    ifw045, thanks for looking at my little lap quilt. i used the lightest weight crotchet thread to make the turkey tracks. it goes really fast.

    thanks susan, yes this is a throw and i didn't really measure. i know i should but i get distracted easily, lol. i make my throws pretty generous. i have heard that when making them for people in wheel chairs they should be smaller so they don't get caught in the wheels. but mine are mostly for recliners so i make them a little smaller than twin size.

    Your quilt is very pretty and I love the crow feet stitching! Thanks for sharing. I'm thinking I may have to try the CF stitch now.

    When you used the variegated thread, what needle did you use? I have not used that kind of crochet thread, but I assume it would take a bigger sewing needle?

    THANK YOU!!!! Thimblebug your second post is the one I remembered. Very clear directions. The others provide very helpful info as well. I am making a quilt from men's deconstructed neckties and want to use this stitch to "quilt" it. Again, thank you!! I love this board!

    I like your quilt and the quilting stitch you used works with great effect. It is certainly "out of the box" terrific!
