    @dasiemae46 Hi DaisieMae, yes, I would select a backing and some batting/wadding and quilt that top any way that you feel most comfortable and start using it! 🙂

    hello Marguerit I have just recenty have just discover you on YouTube. A the videos I have watch you are my favorite. I was going through my lqrge stash. I found a hand made quilt. All different colors. I don 't know where I got it. What should I do with it? No backing all kinds of shapes. Should put a backing on it?

    @georgette329 Hi Georgette, yes, it gets easier and easier to tell by touch, if you've handled a lot of fabrics. Thanks so much for watching and commenting! Marguerita

    Thank you for explaining the thread count. Just feeling the fabrics I can tell the difference between a high thread count and the lower thread count. I am with you, buy the cheaper stuff to practice on. After a lot of work working on a quilt, I sure want it to last a long time.

    @Notthecoolmom Hi, a low thread count would be in the 68×68 threads per square inch and a much nicer fabric would be more like 100 or more by 70 or more, but too high of a thread count (say sheets that are 200 or more) are harder to sew through so super-high thread counts are not always better for sewing. I WISH those numbers were on each bolt of fabric at the fabric shops! Right now I only see thread counts on packages of sheets or bedding, not fabric shop fabrics. Good question – THX!

    @DKMontoya4670 Yes, I'm back! Hehehehe. I have a long list of videos I want to work on this summer! Yes, I've done the same thing – bought what looked pretty without checking the weave of the fabric. I can hardly believe that old blankie of mine is still holding together after all these years.
