    I will often not use batting when I am making a rag quilt as they are too hot, especially if I am using flannel. When I do use batting I just sew an X across the I am usually in a hurry, as I am doing now. I have tied one and on a smaller one (lap size) put some buttons in the...

    Okay, I know that some of you inventive & resourceful ladies here have made them & made them inexpensively. I would love to hear from you and how you went about doing it. I have a HUGE picture window in our den (60 inches high & 120 inches wide) and I desperately need something to hang in it...

    I'm thinking about making myself some window quilts to block the draft a bit. Has anyone made or used them? Do you like them? Any good links?? I only have 6 windows to do, so it shouldn't be too bad.

    Has anyone made a crazy quilt? I have finished about 8 blocks in my crazy quilt. My blocks are each color themed (blue or pink etc) and has a lot of fancy embroidery stitches and other embellishments such as lace and buttons. This quilt really won't be to functional for use, probably more for...

    I've been donating quilts to Project Linus for over five years. The drop off point isn't real close to home, so I usually let them pile up and then donate a bunch at once -- usually once or twice a year. I'm not really a "joiner" so I like the idea that this is something I can work on alone...

    I don't know if I should put plastic over my windows or try a window quilt. Which would work better? Would it be redundant to use both?

    although I have made several quilts over the years, I really need everyone's thoughts on this: I am planning on making a denim quilt-from left-over jeans scraps- (never made one from denim before) & I want to use flannel for the back. My question is...since the denim & flannel are thick anyway...

    Does anyone make art quilts here? Or design their own quilts? I've done some of this and am really enjoying it. Though I'm never quite sure where a project is going to end out or what it will look like!

    Just wondering does anyone here make them? I would like to give them a go, just start with something simple and basic to see how I go with hand-piecing. :)
