This past weekend I cut out batting for 4 small quilts. Thanks to our purchase of 2 rolls of batting this summer, there is no shortage of batting in our house. I still haven’t touched the roll of wool batting. The batting I cut this weekend was Hobbs 80/20 batting. I’m happy to report we can now close the door to the closet containing the batting without needing to body check it first.
The first to be quilted is going to be this quilt, Starstruck by Bonnie Hunter that’s going to find a home as a wall hanging in my sewing room.
Here it is without borders:
Looking at the picture with borders below I think I have a problem with wavy borders and I may need to think about redoing the borders before I start doing any quilting.
I have a black fabric with a multi-colour print for the back and perhaps the binding. The quilting will be close grid lines in the border and I haven’t quite decided what in the centre. I want to avoid doing grid lines through the blocks. As it’s not going to get high use I’m too worried if it’s not quilted too densely.
