3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilt Backing Advice Needed! on: July 01, 2010 04:05:08 PM
i like to use 100% cotton for backing on any quilts that are meant to be used vs. hung up on a wall.

there are many places online and sometimes local to your area that sells what is called wide backing.

you can buy backing fabric that is oversized (like 108 inches wide vs. the standard 42-44 inches you find for piecing the top).

since this if your first quilt you might have best results by using a wide back fabric so you don't have to worry about shifting seams on both the front and the back.

i started by making a Rail Fence Quilt.

my 2nd quilt was a log cabin.

both of these were done for a baby so the size is small and for quilting i just did a stitch in the ditch.

since then i pretty much do my own designs or sampler type quilts.

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Patchwork pyramid in the hopes of being a wallhanging. Suggestions? on: June 27, 2010 03:35:46 PM
i would add more to this to either bring it square or rectangle for ease of hanging as an art piece.

i would add another border all around the piece you have and then i would make 1 more and attach them to each other at the fat bottom with the points sticking out.

then do plain setting triangles to just like it to make it more rectangular. you can do some fancy quilting or fiber couching to play off the center triangle designs.

then you can add a border of the triangles, alternating between the pieced triangle and a solid triangle.
