    Hi fellow quilters. I am needing help with this Irish Star. I made this one, so there is not a problem with how I do this. I made three of these and two of them I used a panto on. I am wanting to custom this one. I have attached a picture of one with the Panto on it, and also pictures of the one I am wanting to custom. I have drawn a complete blank on what to do. As you can see, there are three different blocks in this quilt, so it should not be so confusing, but is. Thanks for any help you can give.

    well i'm glad it "spoke" to you. The one you showed quilted was gorgeous so I had no doubt you would come up with something that would work well. Pics later?

    Hi, all, has anyone ever added extra batting underneath parts of a quilt on the frame because, no matter what. it won't steam or lay flat? If so, do you use batting tape or just lay it in there? I get fooled sometimes when I lay a top out as to how it will behave at the borders. TIA, Kathy Baumbusch

    What kind of batting were you using? I will try this when I need to take up excess border fabric. So do just place it where the fullness is or does it go the length of the border?

    Does it not make the border fuller than the rest of the quilt?

    The M bobbin holds almost twice the thread that the L bobbin holds. Jim

    The size. The M bobbin holds more thread than the L bobbin.
