batting was used? It's wonderful!


Judy, I was able to learn that Sue Nickels always uses Hobb's Heirloom (80 % cotton/20 % poly) batting.

I do like that binding. I think I'll have to use that idea on some of my quilts. I had thought I would make the BOM this year, but got too incredibly busy with other projects, but I have saved all the patterns. The binding though seems good for lots of types of quilts. Thanks Margo for showing us the close in picture.

Hi Diane -

Luckily, the drive home was completely clear. Even had a moose trotting next to me for a little bit of the way! Too bad it was too dark to see him very clearly! I think moose are incredibly majestic!

Margo,

Thanks for posting a photo of the binding.

Nancy,

I hope that the snow wasn't too bad for your trip home.

Here's a photo of the binding on the original quilt:

(Click on the photo twice to see the detail!!)
Sure looks to me like a lot of time would be involved in the embellishment! :shock:

Here's an interesting quote from Sue and Pat's "Raw Edge Appliqué" book: "Embellishing fabric takes a bit of time, so you may want to reserve this technique for your smaller projects." :shock:

I think I remember Pat Holly talking about that in her TQS episode. She also does that on the background fabric for some of her applique. Very cool! (Good seeing you yesterday!!)

I saw the 2013 BOM when I attended the TQS taping yesterday. John Anderson pointed out a special embellishment on the binding. The stripes on the binding were created with specialty stitches on the fabric. Now THAT is attention to detail!
