no sunshine today, back to the rain, and I just wasn't getting overly inspired today!
I did finish off the last bit of McTavishing on my little Sunny Days quilt from yesterday
But, using the edge of my hopping foot as my guide means that these quilting lines are all really close together, and I fear if I do this on a real quilt, I'll end up with a piece of stiff cardboard! What are your favourite battings to keep a quilt supple, even when there is a lot of quilting on it?
(all quilting today done with Gutterman cotton thread 50W, top and bobbin, 80/12 topstitch needle (this is my fave needle to use just about always), Acrtic Cotton batting and muslin. The Sunny Days quilt has a mixture of Gutterman cotton 50W, Sulky rayon and Holoshimmer thread on top with Gutterman cotton 50W in the bobbin, all on a polished cotton sheeting which demanded that I use a Microtex needle. A poly blend batting was used. All quilting done on my HV Lily 555, feed dogs down.)
