Can someone solve a puzzle please?
Over the past few months, I have seen references here and there to 'edge
to edge quilting'; and one or two mentioned that this was 'not allowed'
in a particular show.
I have been hoping (as usual!) that the answer to what this is would
become clear, if I kept reading.
Well, so far it hasn't; and I really would like to know.  I have a
feeling it might have something to do with a quilt not having a binding?
If so, I do need to know, because I have started finishing some of my
quilts by using a facing.
Thanks very much indeed for any help.

I think maybe they mean something like an all-over grid pattern, rather than
something that fit the blocks and borders.  That would be my guess anyhow.

Wow am I glad that I got here first!!  I want to tell my side of the
story before those girls get on here and give you all the wrong
impression!

First, I want to say that I found another place that I can't afford to
hang out  That would be Barrington ILL.  Julie, Linda and I met at a
quilt shop up there and behaved like almost perfect ladies.  We shopped,
we schmoozed, we stayed until they indicated that they wanted to go home
and that we should too.  No problem, we decided just to move the
SEXpedition over to a place to eat and then call it a night.

There was a place in the same shopping center with a big sign  "BISTRO"
so I suggested that we just stop there.  We entered and were seated by a
tiny little woman with a figure to die for and a cute little accent.
She handed us the menus and went in the corner to snicker at us. Well!
Us three simple little country girls were shocked to find out that there
were no prices on the menu---If you had to ask you can't afford!
Bravely we looked at one another,--were we going to let those french
waiters with the tight pants intimidate us?  No by golly!  So, we
ordered appitizers and drinks.  I am happy to report that neither Julie
nor myself embarrassed Linda by rolling on the floor and shouting
EEEEUW!!  When she ordered escargot and that we conducted ourselves with
GREAT DIGNITY AT ALL TIMES UNTIL WE LEFT THE PLACE!!
that is my story and I'm sticking to it.

I don't know Pat but I be interested to find out and can you explain how
you are finishing a quilt by facing?

Thanks

Well, Miss Judy, that may be what you remember, but that's not all
that happened.

As we were following Toothpick Lady to our table, Judy began muttering
something under her breath.  OooLaLa  OooLaLa  OooLaLa  She was also
oogling the waiters.  After gasping in shock that a bowl of soup cost
$5, Judy and I decided that we could afford a salad.  And then Linda
announced that she would be having snails.  EEEUW!

It took such a long time for us to get our food that Judy had plenty
of opportunity to get into trouble.  She was still muttering OooLaLa,
but was getting louder.  Suddenly, she jumped up and tackled the
waiter at the next table.  I believe she was attempting to pinch his
cheeks when there was another commotion.  One of Linda's snails had
managed to escape from the kitchen and was creeping towards the door
just as fast as he could.  In the resulting confusion, the waiter
managed to get away from Judy, hold the door open for the snail and
escape to the parking lot.  Undaunded, our Judy jumped up and sprinted
after the waiter, screaming OooLaLa OooLaLa all the way.

At this point Linda and I decided to save the poor waiter.  Using our
purchases at the quilt shop, we managed to bind and***her.  The chef
has also recaptured the snail.  When we finally got our meal, we had
to unbind Judy so that she could eat.  That was a mistake. The table
next to us was just getting their dessert.  As they were pouring the
Grand Mariner on the souffle, Judy began flipping lit matches toward
the table, trying to set the souffle on fire.  Her excuse was that the
Greeks do it all the time.  At this point, we were asked to pay our
bill and leave and not come back.  As we were leaving, Judy's parting
comment was that she had been kicked out of better joints than this.
At least she didn't get arrested this time, unless it was on the way
home.

Hi B (if I know you well enough to address you like that now? )
Just like putting a facing on the open front of a dress/shirt etc -
the quilt top is finished and then quilted in the usual way.
Then, instead of a binding, strips of (I use) the backing fabric are
sewn onto the edges of the front (right sides together).  If it is a
rectangular quilt, I then mitre the corners - sewing up to within a
quarter of an inch of the raw edge - and turn the facing to the back.
Turn under the raw quarter of an inch and sew in place.  If you are
careful with the turning, there is no backing fabric seen on the front
and no front fabric seen on the back, the joining seam is halfway down
the thickness of the quilt.  It is really no more difficult than binding
and, with my pictorial quilts, it lets me finish off the picture at the
edge of the picture rather than introducing a solid strip of another
colour/shape around it.  Sometimes, of course, I want to frame the
picture, but not always.
The procedure with fancy-shaped quilts is different and you may not want
to be bogged down with that method; but, if you do, then I will gladly
describe that too - it isn't hard, just different.
Best Regards
Pat

      Obviously I should have cancelled my dinner plans and come with the 3 of
you as a chaperone! You know, I've lived here for 8 years and I've never
ventured into that particular restaurant. Today I just happened to stop in
there and they had wanted posters on the wall (a bit strange for a restaurant -
especially one in Barrington!). The faces looked familiar and when I looked
closer I could see that it was the three of you! Don't worry though, I didn't
let on that I recognized you.<G>
