Today is my day off work, and I headed into my sewing room after the kids went to school this morning. I pieced the last blocs yesterday, and finished the last two rows and pieced them together today! I was afraid the quilt would be too small to be a lap quilt, but with a border it will be a nice sized quilt.
I haven't figured out how to quilt it yet, but I have to buy some batting and backing for it, so I'll have time to think about it. I am wondering if I should buy wool batting for this quilt. I have never used that kind before, and I wonder if it is "hard" to work with. Do any of you used wool batting? What would be your first choice for a lap quilt, and a quilt you want to be warm and soft? The cotton batting I used in my "Purple love" quilt is kind of stiff... Will it get more soft after a trip in the washing maschine? Or will it get softer when it's used some times?
My focus project this week will be to finish the two charity quilts I've been working on. I need to get the two binded, and I have been making binding for one of them today. I hoped to deliver them tonight, at the quilt guild meeting, but I will not be able to finish the binding till then. I'm looking forwar to the meeting tonight, and to meet the other ladies again. We are having one meeting a month, and it's so nice to see what the other ladies have made since last time :o) Lots of inspiration :o)
