In my quest to make Quilts of Valor without using a volunteer long armer (because there are so few among the many piecers), I did research on the “quilt as you go” method. I decided to try it and practice on a wall hanging size quilt before tackling a full size QOV.
Pleased with the way the wall hanging is turning out,
I went back to the QOVF website, to double check the minimum/maximum QOV size requirements. While there, I noticed a “Do Not” requirement under “Quilting” …
2. Do only stitch in the ditch on a domestic machine or use giant meander.
3. Do not use high-loft batting.
I get #1 and #3 … but need to understand why #2 is listed as a “Do Not”.
I really need to know. I need to know why it’s not acceptable.
