Scrappy Trip ~ Finish

7.15.2013

I so love this quilt...


This baby will be warm and it's heavy! Not only did I use flannel for the backing, I doubled the cotton batting. It took forever to dry in the dryer. 


I doubt I will double batting again in a quilt due to the cost, but I will say, I do like the definition the extra loft it gave this quilt. 


I can check this quilt off of my list of "must make!"

Have a happy week, everyone!

  1. It looks great! I have to finish three other quilts before I can finish my scrappy trip along. I like your borders too.

  6. Hi Amy, Is there any chance you would share your pattern? Where I could purchase it? I LOVE it. I am adding it to my "must make" list!

  7. It is gorgeous, Amy. I find the double batt thing very interesting. If I ever get a long arm machine, I have a few very high quality polyester batts left from my handquilting years, so I could then try one with my current favorite cotton batt to see if I like the difference in definition of the quilting.
    Love the colors, fabric, and design of this quilt! You do such lovely work!

  13. Gorgeous! I remember finishing my first quilt and thinking that it was so thin. I was expecting it to be fluffier! :) I might try double batting on one to see what it's like. But you are right-batting is so expensive. Did the extra layer cause more shifting or headaches during the quilting process?

    Again, it's a beauty. If you ever get tired of it, feel free to pass it my way! :) haha!!

  15. It is wonderful! The loft was immediately noticeable. Do you remember those fat poly batts that were so popular years ago? I made my daughter's baby quilt with one ~
