I FINALLY finished this quilt!
This quilt has been on a quest! It has been to SL, UT (twice), Idaho, Miami Beach, New Orleans, Austin (twice), and various Oklahoma cities on its quest to be feel complete since November 2013.
This quilt is 81 inches square and has wool batting, I’m in love.
I am happy that I chose wool batt for this quilt, I want to use it on our bed and I’m cold when it’s 82 out, so, I need something warmer sometimes. I do wish that I had serged the edges of the quilt before attaching the binding, it would have been flatter and easier for me to hand sew as I finished. Wool batting is fluffy, so, it wasn’t difficult to sew, I just absolutely had to use wonder clips.
Speaking of Wonder Clips, here are my favorite things to use while binding a quilt.
Needles-I am loving the Tulip needles right now, they glide nicely into the fabric, someone recommended appliqué size 10 and that’s what I have.
Wonder Clips-I have pink ones and red, just depends on my mood…
Snips-It’s best to just attach them to a lanyard and throw it on your neck
Thimble Pads-they are reusable, comfortable pads to use like a thimble, after use, put it on your snips sheath or something sturdy to reuse again and again
Thread-I love Aurifil, 50 wt.
Chocolate-not available for photos right now.
