I started the quilting on the fruit basket quilt. I used unbleached muslin for the backing fabric and Hobb’s Tuscany Wool batting.
Each basket block has 37 pieces so there are a lot of seams to quilt through! It is harder to quilt through seams because of the additional layers of fabric. It is easier for me to sew through all those seams with a larger needle. I am using a #9 between needle and thick thread and larger stitches. The wool batting is providing a nice loft and the fan design shows up very well.
