Plans

I am in a mad dash to finish my stripey vintage quilt.  I hope to have pictures of the completed quilt tomorrow.

Meanwhile I got backing and batting for the log cabin variation that I re-pieced.

Paisley for the backing and black binding.

 

I think the backing fabric goes great with the top, and it is a wide (108″) fabric so I wont need any seams.

 

I also bought the batting.

 

I love wool!  it quilts so easily.

I’m back to work on that quilt…check back tomorrow for the finished product.

Happy Quilting

Tim

    Good choice using the paisley fabric! And WOOL! I quilted a customer quilt with wool and that was Heaven to work with and they are warm in the winter and cool in the summer! I have a wool batt just like that waiting to use in one of my own quilts if I ever get one done around here!

    Love that fabric!!! And I haven’t used wool yet; thanks for the encouragement! I’ll have to try that soon. Also want to know how you liked using Quilter’s Dream…

      It is great fabric, it also comes in a few other colors so I might get some more. I love wool, quilts like butter, but it does have more loft so the look is a bit different than the very thin cotton. The quilters dream is so thin that I feel like there is no batting at all…easy to quilt but I prefer more loft…I think the quilting shows better when the batting is thicker
