QUILTING PLEDGE CONTINUES
Another quilt finished off my pile.
I used a batting that I hadn't tried before, it's Nu-Wool, made locally and 60% wool, 40% polyester. I have always used a natural batting before be it cotton, wool or bamboo, but I do like to play with something a little different and since I'm far from a purest as I use a polyester blend thread in my quilts, why not.
I was happily surprised at the result, very easy to quilt and I love the loft of it, I'm impressed and will definately be using it again.
The quilting itself is something I had jotted down in my ideas journal for quite a while. I wanted lines, but an organic look (not nessarily straight) with the lines going in 3 directions and spaced at different intervals. I'm happy with the quilting, I think it suits the design.
