Two of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt tops for 2022 are in that stage where I've been making progress on finishing them, but it's not all that obvious if you're just looking at them!
I've been quilting the Bloom Baskets in a diagonal grid, mostly in the ditch so far. The quilting lines are ending up 4 inches apart, and I'm wondering if that will feel like enough quilting if that's all I do.
While stitching along, I always try to decide if I have a favorite block. Today it's this yellow one! Thinking again about adding more quilting in between the current lines: do I want the quilting to cut through the baskets? Not sure yet.
The Dancing Plus quilt is in the pressing stage, which is a tedious one for hand-pieced tops. Look at all those block intersections!
I do have the backing cut for it - the same as Bloom - Sprinkles from Connecting Threads. I bought a lot of it!
Using the gift certificate to my LQS that I got at my quilt group's gift exchange, I bought some wool batting. I have been wanting to try wool batting for hand quilting, and that's what I'm planning to do with the Dancing Plus quilt.
Have you used wool batting? Let me know what your experience has been.
