Hello Y'all!

I'm working on a "quilt" to be given as a gift. It's a copy of the artwork from Bright Eye's "i'm wide awake it's morning"-- large tree appliqud onto a plain background. I was inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35759.0.

I want the finished product to be quite fluffy(think comforter). Should I use super-thick batting? Several layers of moderately thick batting? Is there some special product I have never even heard of that would be perfect for this kind of thing?

I wanted to hand tie the whole thing in hopes that it would help it look a little "poofier" (also, his birthday is in one week). I'm against using yarn for this (it seems like that would look a little too elementary school). What is another good option? Embroidery floss? Quilting thread? How do I know how close together to put the "ties"?

Thanks in advance for your help. Y'all come up with the most amazing stuff- I couldn't think of a better forum in which to ask these questions.

You gotta do something besides kill drifters to get erections.
