10-Minute Block Quilt

I have been really busy quilting, and so very thankful, too!

I just finished this bright and cheery quilt for Peg.  These fabrics just make me smile.  I enjoyed doing this one with a bright yellow Glide.  I made up a really simple freehand, feather/swirl border motif since the border fabric is so busy.  I knew that not much would show, particularly since I used Peg's warm and natural batting.  I will be trying this motif again on a solid with a loftier batting.




What is your favorite batting?  Have you tried anything new lately?  I'd love to hear what you use and like.  Okay, well, I am headed back to the "studio" (I love to use that word, it makes it sound like I am an artist, doesn't it?  haha!)  I have Chris' quilt on the frame and I am almost done with it.

Just perfect. So far I've used mostly Quilters Dream blend since I don't like my quilts to get really crinkly and I've tried the Pellon blend which I don't like nearly as much but it is ok. It is a lot lintier and not consistant throughout. I haven't tried the Warm battings yet.

this is really pretty and gives me some really good ideas for the one I've got lurking!
