Batting


So far I can tell that I LOVE the Mountain Mist Cream Rose Batting.  The needle slips easily through the batting and the quilt feels so soft already!

Your top and stitches are both beautiful! Thank you for sharing your experience with the batting. I think that's such an important part of a quilt. Can I please ask you what needle you are using?

I saw your post and had to go look at the bat I chose a month or so ago for a quilt. Yes! It's Mountain Mist Cream Rose! I'm fairly new to hand quilting - and now I can really look forward to quilting with this batting. Thanks for telling us what you think. You must be a very experienced quilter to have such perfect stitches.

Hi Lucy

Awesome quilting. Can I ask if the marked quilting lines are drawn with a pencil or did you use a Clover Hera marker?

Holly Field Designs said...

I love your backing fabric too! It looks like a French General print, is it? Your quilting is amazing. I've used that batting before and it's very nice, and washes nicely too.

Sandra B said...

Wow Lucy, your quilting stitches are beautiful! I really must try a batting more suitable for hand quilting - cotton is so stiff although great for machine quilting.

Your hand-quilting looks fabulous. I wish I could do that right from the start instead of going through months of having it look like the cat did it. Sigh. Happy New Year!

Mette said...

This quilt is gorgeous! I love the way, you have mixed the fabrics. The color theme is so delicate. I envy you your hand-quilting!

Michelle said...

Your hand quilting is just divine!

Annelein said...

You just make lovely little stitches... I wish I will ever be able to make them myself...

Cynthia@aquilterbynight said...

There is nothing like hand quilting, and this quilt is so very pretty! I'll have to try that batting sometime.

betweens said...

Thanks for the information on the batting you are using. Your stitches are absolutely perfect! I will keep this batting in mind for one of the quilts I want to hand quilt.
I found you through Pinterest and now have added you to my reader to keep up with your wonderful projects. Thanks for Sharing
