WIP & New Batting

I spent the day piecing a lap quilt that I can’t show you until January.  I will say it was a fast project and I really like the fabric I’m using.  It went together so fast I was ready for basting before I knew it!

Here’s a picture of the back after I got the quilt basted.  Isn’t this print fun?

Backing Basted

This fabric is part of the Pedal Pushers line for Moda – Raspberry Feedsack

There are lots of solid white pieces in the top so I wanted to use a white batting.  I usually just go for the natural color since that is the easiest to find where I live, but my LQS does carry a few white packages of Quilters Dream so that’s what I bought.

I love to use the Quilters Dream Select, but could only find the Quilters Dream Request in white. The package says ‘thinnest loft, excellent for machine quilting.’ So far I can confirm the “thinnest loft” claim. 🙂  I’ve never worked with a batting so thin before. I actually considered using a double layer of it in this project, but decided against it. I want to see how drape-y (yes, I’m SURE that’s a word) and soft this batting will be.

Tomorrow I’ll begin quilting so I’ll let you know how it goes.

Meanwhile, since I can’t show you pictures of the project I’m going to show you the scraps I have from piecing the blocks.  I’m sure these will end up in a pillow or something!

    I really love the colours in Pedal Pushers. I bought a jelly roll that I started using for a project that’s now not being worked on (lol). I like some prints and colour combos more than others in the line, but most of them are so vibrant and fun!

    That’s a nice teaser with the fabric leftovers. It looks like it will be a really nice quilt.

  5. Lovely! I am not a pink person, but I really like the backing fabric.
