I think I need to line it..just not sure what to use. I have been weaving in ends as I go, but it still looks kind of messy. What should I use? I would appreciate your suggestions.

And thanks, everyone, for saying such nice things.


Whatever you choose for lining, dont let it be a slippery fabric like dress lining. A cotton sheet, perhaps, or an cotton type curtain lining, unbleached calico or such that wont slide off the bed, or knees or whereever

If you are not a quilter yourself this what I would do bring it to some place where they make quilts and have them finish it off for you.

I brought a quilt that was getting really raggy to a quilters group and had them put on a new cover. It really saved the quilt because my son wasn't going to leave me throw it out. Time does fly this must have been 15 years ago. My son is still using this quilt it really held up nice.

That looks really great. I like the dark colour you have used inbetween the squares, which really stand out. I am sure your son will be very pleased to receive such a treasure. Autumn Leaves
