Not Much Fun - W.i.P. Wednesday

I'm making slow progress hand quilting Children's Garden.  I used Warm & Natural batting because I had a piece available but it doesn't quilt as easily as the Cream Rose did.  Of course it could be my lack of experience in hand quilting... but I'm not enjoying it much.  The next time I use a cotton bat I think I'll go back to Cream Rose; or perhaps I'll try a bamboo, wool, or other kind of bat.  I think wool batting would be easy to hand quilt through but what about laundering?  Anyone have experience with other brands and varieties of bats?

Our cherry trees bloomed on sunny Tuesday but I was "out" with the flu (no fun) so I missed photos that day.  Now it's cool and grey.  I'm sure (well, almost sure) I'll feel better by the time warm and sunny spring days return (unless that's tomorrow).

I'm linking this post to W.i.P. Wednesday at freshlypieced.  Thanks, Lee.


P.S.  I won a Traveling Stash Box.  I want to enjoy it when I open it so I'll wait another day or two.  I'll post about it soon.


  1. I'm curious about the wool batting too, so please share what you learn!

  2. Wool is nice to hand quilt through, but it is expensive and requires special washing care.
    Personally, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Hobbs Tuscany 100% cotton batting for handquilting. It is my "go to" batting from now on. :)


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
