1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Batting question.... on: January 15, 2007 05:32:54 PM
I am looking for a batting that does not need to have quilting lines very close together.  I usually use all cotton batting that requires stitching every two inches.  I want to do some quicker, simple quilts that don't have tons of quilting, maybe even just tied, but I am having trouble finding a batting for this.  My fabulous mom got me two rolls of poly batting thinking that should do it, but even this poly batting says quilting lines need to be 2-4 inches apart.  I know what I am looking for is out there, but what is the type/brand?Huh

TIA!  Smiley

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple fun and funky toddler quilt on: December 04, 2006 07:46:16 PM
Just finished up this fun toddler quilt.  It's super simple and machine quilted but it was fun just because the fabrics are so fun!  I began with the bright blue flower fabric and knew I wanted a striped back.  Anywho, here it is (with my adorable daughter checking it out!)

The close-up pics are kind of wacky color wise but you get the idea Wink

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Turtle baby quilt, hand quilting in progress - *more pics added p. 2* on: October 14, 2006 11:16:03 AM
Not yet a completed quilt (though I am FINALLY getting close, lol!), but this seems to be the place to post pics.

I made up the pattern for some friends who had a baby boy and love turtles (they have some).  The piecing/applique is fairly simple but I have gotten more complex with the quilting (which is taking me ages, lol).  I LOVE quilting though!!!!  The fabrics, the hand quilting, the product...LOVE doing it  Cheesy

The stars are easier to see on the back:

I am trying to get a decent pic of the whole thing..I'll post one later.

While peicing the front, I love these fabrics!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Burrying the knot (mine keep popping out!) on: October 07, 2006 06:46:57 AM
As I am hand quilting, I am seeing knots are coming back out here and there.  I am not using a hoop or frame to quilt, so it does get a lot of twisting and flipping about as I work, but it is a baby quilt that will get lots of use so this is a good test to see how well it's gonna hold up.  I am going to go ahead and finish the quilting and then go back and fix all the popped out knots, ugh.  If this doesn't happen to you please share your technique for sturdy knot burrying!
