37  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fabric question on: May 26, 2008 07:58:34 AM
I havent seen much plain color cottons in the stores ive been in.. I'll have to look again.. Mostly prints thats why i was asking about the broadcloth. More for backing and maybe sashing(i think its called)

Backing should be fine as long as you baste well.  Sashing I would be more careful with - particularly if the blocks are all cotton, but like someone else said, it comes down to personal preference.  Perhaps try it with something small as a sample before buying loads for a quilt?

Personally I find cotton much easier to work with, especially for piecing.  It holds better and doesn't 'slide' and then pucker like poly-cotton can.

I'd either do straight lines - in the ditch and then some diagonal across blocks. 


Interlocking circles - sometimes curves across very straight lines add interesting movement.  You could draw round plates to get the circles on.  If the curves are shallow enough you can still use your walking foot quite easily.

Are you using a walking foot?  That makes it so much easier.  And i always lengthen my stitch-length quite a bit too.
