I used a 100% cotton batting for the first time and I don't like it at all. The backing sticks to the batting and forms wrinkles and creases. With the poly I usually use, it's very easy to run your hand over, pull and get rid of the wrinkles--the backing fabric slides easily.
It's a Mountain Mist batting that I bought years ago and never used. Maybe it's defective or something.
I've decided not to waste much time on this one and am doing a combination of quilting and tying. Only the plain blocks are getting quilted with interlocking circles. I think there are 16 of these blocks. The remainder will be tied.
I've found the dining room table works great for tying.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
