    May we discuss Quilting? 15th Jun 05 at 11:21 AM
    Following on from the daily "what's going on" last week, I was set a challenge to get started on some quilting.

    I sorted through my needlework box and I found:

    - 4 squares of fabric, from 4" x 5" to 5" x 6", each with a border and a farm animal or 2 in the centre
    - a bag of wadding
    - various packets of ordinary sewing needles
    - about 100 assorted reels of cotton

    What else do I need to get started? (We don't have any old sheets or calico.)
    Where do I start?
    Which stitch do I use?

    I also checked my virgin sewing machine handbook and the machine does ordinary back stitch and zig zag of varying lengths, including smocking and various buttonhole stitches.
    Highest debt: 35k (2005); Current debt: 10k
    My wins: 2,500 cash; 36 cash; Jesus Christ Superstar tickets + 2 t-shirts; Creative Craft Show tickets; Birmingham City v Barnsley FC tickets; Marillion tickets; Beyond the Pole DVD; 1,000 cash; Legend of the Guardians goody bag; Dancing on Ice tickets; Barnsley FC v Millwall tickets
    Life's too short for me to report anyone's harmless sig. Besides, they don't pay me and I ain't that petty. Nor do I have that much spare time on my hands.
