love the St Patty's quilt
I've spent the past week watching an online class in free motion quilting on Craftsy. I found it really interesting and made it seem less intimidating, since so far I have only stitched in the ditch and done a bit of hand quilting. One thing that the girl doing the class said was that she uses a poly thread (I think Isacord or something?) as its strong enough for the travel stitching involved in free motion quilting and it doesn't matter if the rest of the quilt is all cotton. She did say its a bit of a point of discussion within quilting circles, but what do all of you lovely ladies do with your quilts? all the same material (front, back, batting and thread), or does it not really matter if you use a poly thread in a cotton quilt? I really want to try the free motion stuff as it looks so cool, but I'm scared of the travel stitching with cotton if its going to break.
Since I finished my Dr Seuss quilt I guess I need to go back to my list and see which quilt I should get started on next, so I can actually contribute to this thread, not just ask questions!
