Not so you could tell here in eastern Pennsylvania! It is going to be 90 today. It would be so much more understandable if I lived in Alabama or Texas or even Virginia. I need the cool air to come and stay and not just for a couple of days. Enough with the teasing!
OK - got that out of the way...
I started quilting one of the baby quilts I pieced earlier in the month. I am using wool batting for the first time. Oh.my.goodness! I love this batting!
I have been using Warm and Natural for such a long time and I do love the way the quilts feel old and "antique-ie" after they are washed but this batting quilts up so beautifully. There is a light puffiness in the quilting and is much easier to move on the machine bed. I have not finished the quilting so I haven't seen yet how it appears after washing. I will let you know what I think after I complete the final step.
I purchased several bags of this batting just for baby quilts. I had been wanting to try wool batting and when I saw this
Here's what just a bit of the quilting looks like at this point. I am going to do a loopy line down the center of the lattice strips and then feathers on the outside border.
You really cannot see the loft but, I promise, it is very fluffy. I am thinking now that I might want to use wool batting for my Chocolat quilt. I bet it would be warm and not have too much weight. Anyone have any experience with wool batting in a large quilt?
