A rose by any other name. . .

Someone asked me about the batting I used in the “Princess” quilt. It has a very nice, drapey feel to it. At the time I couldn’t remember the name to save my soul.


But now I can say, “It is called ‘Cream Rose’ by Mountain Mist.”

I usually buy my batting by the package. And I usually get the largest size. Since I often use the quilt-as-you-go method, which means I wind up cutting the batting in smaller pieces, that seems like the best method for me.

If I had a little more room AND if it were cost effective, I would think about buying a big roll of batting so I would always have enough on hand. As it is, I can almost always get packaged batting at 50% off. And I usually stock up on a few at a time, so I have never run out.

I am unexpectedly going to be free today. I really should get a bunch of housework caught up since I will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner. But I think I might just spend most of the day quilting!! After all, I have a lot of projects that need to be finished!!!

  1. I’ll have to try that batting. But for now, I have my hands full. Progress Report #3: Yesterday I finished machine quilting the 17 star blocks. I got into a nice rhythm and was almost disappointed when I’d finished them all! I think “quilt-as-you-go” may become my saving grace to make big quilts. Later in the day after my two distractions (Comcast to set up my TV in the new sewing room and a quick run to work to let an employee leave early for the day) and I was able to cut the solid blocks and start cutting the joining strips. I need more batting and joining strip fabric before I can continue so after a quick store run after work, I’ll be at it again.

    But I do have to cut strips for the Jelly Roll Race on Saturday so progress on this quilt may stop for a few days. Next week I’ll have more days off over Thanksgiving and can give it more time.


  2. Barb, Great to hear that you are making such good progress! I told you it would go pretty quickly. Good luck with your Jelly Roll workshop on Saturday. Don’t go overboard with working on that. After all, you have Christmas gifts to make!!! See you soon.
