Welcome to the “overthinker’s club”! After choosing the perfect fabric for the border of my second Noah andMatilda quilt at Busy Thimble, I came home and dug out a few more – “just in case”. Of course, I went right back to my original choice. Do you do that too?
I have already started to hand quilt it, so if you preferred one of the other choices for the border – please don’t let me know! Wink!
I like to split my wool batts in half for a lower loft. I am using my preferred “Quilters Dream” for this one. It is easy to do in the potholder method as the pieces are so much smaller. This one was a bear. I ended up with a much thicker batt than I would normally use. I have found that battings do vary even from the same company. Some are very easy to split into even layers and others present a challenge. This one just wanted to be “fat”! The silver lining is that I now have lots of “shreds” for stuffing.
You can get the pattern for this fabulous quilt from Dawn (Collector with a Needle). I had so much fun with the first one I had to do it again!
