Project: crib quilt
Size: Approx. 36″ X 36″
Reference/Pattern: Traditional “Shoo fly” block using EQ7 “Block to Quilt” feature/ Sailboat, Stars, Rose patterns from EQ7
Designed by: Barbara Wolff
Constructed by: Barbara Wolff
Quilted by: Barbara Wolff
Where: Newton, IA
Techniques Used: Machine piecing and quilting.
Notes: For Quilt class. DO NOT buy Soft and Crafty 80/20 batting from JoAnn’s. Who likes the antique, crinkly look? I’m getting over it. In spite of the fact that I pre-washed the batting (I’m experimenting with this) as well as the fabric-which I have always done, these still came out pretty crinkly.
Hope springs eternal that a less expensive brand might surprisingly turn out to work well for certain needs. But this stuff was thin and thinner after washing.
OK, I’ll roll with this and make it apart of the lesson.
I think I should do a little more quilting around the sailboat and stars.
