Monday I sandwiched both halves of my queen bed quilt made from the Nicey Jane jelly roll.
I used the wool batting. It’s lovely, soft, puffy, and feels “tender”. I’m sure it would be easy to hand quilt. It’s making me a little nervous, because it doesn’t have the firmness and stability I’m used to with the cotton batting. Still, it hasn’t given me any trouble, just feels odd. I have done the stitch in the ditch stabilizing between all the blocks with the walking foot. All seems well. I think it’s lighter weight than the cotton to rest on my shoulder, etc.
Now I’m trying out some stencils on the 12″ blocks. I have a large feather wreath that I like, and a tulip stencil that goes well with the florals on so many of the fabrics. I’m looking at some leaf/vine designs for the sashing and borders.
What are you working on? Something fun, I hope.
I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
