I recently took a workshop with Jacquie Gering (fabulous teacher and person) and was fascinated with the quilting on her Bridges piece. The quilting was an 1/8th of an inch apart. With some advice from her quilter, Sheryl, I tried it and I am very happy with the results. It's a bit tedious but it works. The piece is more pliable than I thought it would be and actually will benefit by being mounted on another backing.
