Now thats a much cheaper option I have not heard of but makes perfect sense ,thanks
Somewhere or another, Dawn (?) suggested sewing the zippers to 2 inch wide grosgrain ribbon under your regular machine. Then I sewed a quarter inch line on the outside edge of the zipper/ribbon piece. Then Dawn suggested safety pinning on the line to your canvas leaders right on the quarter inch line and a marked straight line on the canvas. Since the ribbon is very even and straight it helped. Grosgrain ribbon doesn't stretch. It seems to have worked for me.
Oma ,thats what I guess I was trying to ask ,which weight was better for attaching quilts and backings ,I think I am going to just go for it and stop procrastinating and get er done ,thanks for all the wonderful suggestions
