Batting Sale

I have had a number of people contact me for more information about the batting that was on sale.  The company, as mentioned, is Connecting Threads and the batting that I purchased is Hobbs heirloom Queen size.  Please remember that the sale ends on the 20th so if you are interested, don't delay. They also have thread, fabric, book etc.
I am making great progress in getting all my quilts finished.  I completed one quilt and 2 wall hangings so far.  The quilt only needed binding and I actually just serged around the edges.  I am giving it to a family member for their children to use as a floor blanket. It was one that I used to practise my frame quilting so it certainly wasn't decorative.
I have started the second block of my chicken block of the month.  It is applique and I am using the back basting method.  They are fun to do as I am using crazy colours and the pieces are all fairly large.
I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's.  I have two friends who also have birthdays on that day.
Back to the quilt pile.  I am going to do the binding on the one that I restored for a woman in the village next.

  1. WOW! What a resource! I had to turn that site off for a bit. I can see myself getting rather carried away with my shopping if I don't back up for an hour or so.
    I'm not familiar with this brand of batting. What one would you recommend? (I don't like working with really fluffy batting.)
