I feel like I've admitted to a new level of quilting addiction. I finally ordered a whole bolt of quilt batting. 90"x30yds of fluffy white goodness. I mean, as long as I was only buying enough batting for a few quilts at a time I wasn't really in over my head; I could stop at any time. (Really, I could have stopped...) But buying 30yds of batting at once, well, I'm admitting (to myself and everyone else) that I'm in for a long haul :)
|A new bolt of batting. Now, to find a place to put it...|
Since I wrapped up the do. Good Stitches quilt I was kind of at a loss for what to work on next for a few days. I decided to try to get back to quilting my Stash Bee quilt (not least of all because I needed to reclaim the pins its basted with). I had planned to honeycomb quilt it (seen below). I love how this quilting looks when it's finished and I think it would have been great on this quilt, but... it just wasn't going to happen.
I hated the long stitch length that I got no matter how I tweaked the settings, and I was having huge problems with the quilt top shifting and getting folds in the back. I never have those sort of problems anymore! Finally I decided to rip out the quilting that I'd done so far (thankfully, barely any) and straight line quilt horizontally and vertically instead.
I got 1/4 of the way done yesterday, so just maybe this quilt will be done sometime in the near future.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
