My new two color quilt is finally on my mother-in-law’s bed.
I wanted it to be warm and lightweight so I chose to use a polyester batting.
The polyester batting doesn’t highlight the quilting the same way as a cotton batting – we can’t have all the advantages in a piece of batting!
Do you remember how it started? There are 121 blocks and 11 different patterns.
I pieced the blocks and assembled the top quickly and without difficulties. You couldn’t believe how easy it is to keep everything in order.
I quilted it block by block. I used Aurifil 50wt and the fabulous Jeans Needle.
The feathers meet on the diagonal line for all the blocks, everything runs in the same direction- a beautiful effect – see those darker lines across the quilt.
A multicolor quilt would look beautiful too!
