No more procrastinating! I just finished pin basting my current work in progress. Today I start quilting!
I tried something new (to me) this time. I want some areas of trapunto, and I wanted to do it as easy as possible, so I am using two battings. I’m using Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend on the bottom and Heirloom Washable Wool on top. (From left to right, the picture shows my quilt top, the wool batting, the cotton/poly batting, and the backing.) I know wool will compress under close stitching and puff up when stitched further apart, so I hope to use that to my advantage to create some trapunto designs.
I just realized that this is probably the first quilt I’ve made where everything has come out of my stash. Yeah! I’m in “use-it-up” mode, so this is great.
In the meantime, I’m linking to Freshly Pieced: Work in Progress Wednesday.
