    This was a fun project. It has a clothesline base with cover in the Laural Burch fabric. I have a wall hanging starting to go with it. quilter 1234

    That's really cute, and so colourful! I'm not sure I understand what you mean by a "clothes line base" though - could you tell us more about how you put it together?

    Really distinctive - is it made like the clothsline bowls, but flat instead? If so, I think you are supposed to start with cotton clothsline and machine sew with a zig zag stitch, but with the bowls, the clothes line is wrapped with strips of fabric. Does that make sense? I haven't tried it, as I can't find any cotton clothes line here in Ireland.

    Please let us know how you did this. I can't really figure it out from the picture. It looks like something I could do for our Fall Auction at church. I am always looking for something different to take.

    It is made from regular cotton clothesline rope. You sew the clothesline together in a circle with a zig-zag stitch , keeping it flat going in a circle until it is the size that you want. Then fussy cut a piece of material and basically use the clothesline plate as the batting, cut a back. I used monofilament thread and outlined each animal... or you could quilt in anyway you wanted. Then bind it just like you would a quilt, (bias binding of course. I believe the book that describes the bowls and this project is called Wrap It. I will try and find it on Amazon and include the link. Glad you enjoyed seeing it... There are so may possibilities.... coasters, placemats , plates... quilter 1234

    "It's a wrap" is the title. Look for it at Connecting Threads too as they let you look inside at other projects. Hope this helps. Quilter 1234

    Where did you purchase your clothesline rope and is it all cotton? I can't seem to find all cotton in the local stores. I know you can buy it on-line but I always like to support local merchants if at all possible. I can find cotton with a polyester core but I am afraid it might be solid and damage or break the needle.

    The last I bought I guess was synthetic :( :shock: sorry.. I got it at Walmart, I think Ace Hardware have it too. I actually bought some from a $1 bin once and it works too. I use about a 90 needle and seems to work fine. Quilter1234

    Amazon sells a 200 ft. cotton clothesline. It works out to be a little more than the dollar stores but it is always available. It costs $10.00 and if you are a prime member there is no shipping.
