Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Question: At what point should I attach loops and what is the best way of doing so? I have an idea of making detachable ones, but wouldnt mind hearing how a few of you do yours.

The best way I have found is to pre-make your loops, attatch them upside down on the front side of your hanging. than place your backside on top (right sides together). sew your edges together leaving a small space to turn right side out and than press and stitch the gap closed. hope this helps

i will be hand sewing a sleeve to the back.


(i had a nightmare last night that us customs would not let my quilt into the country cause they deemed it pornographic... and they tried to arrest me in my home... i need to get this one done and on it's way.  Smiley)

and no, it isn't pornographic in ANY way.

I generally just add two loops to the back of mine. I used to do a pocket all the way across but since it takes hand sewing I have decided that two tiny sleeves work just as well (not a fan of hand sewing). I actually do them the very last thing, after the binding is on.

Ok two things:

Quilt and then bind, or bind and then quilt?

Second, Im starting to get the anxiety. Anyone up to take peek and offer some feedback? It would be much appreciated Smiley


Thanks!

Quilt first, then bind.

I just re-did what I did yesterday, with better results, then had fun playing around with the fancy stitch options on my sewing machine. I've got my top done; yay!
