Quilt With Us

One of the graduation quilts is finished. I used the Hobbs wool batt ordered from CT during their March Madness batting sale. (Thanks, CT!) One thing to note - I plan to label it "air dry only" on the quilt label, because I note in the batting package that heat dry may cause shrinkage. I really like the feel of it and will probably use it again sometime. With my batting scraps I plan to see how it "needles" with hand quilting. Anyone else have experience with handquilting through it?

The second quilt needs a binding, so I'm hoping to work on that this afternoon, too.

PS: When I download a picture, is there a way to make it smaller so it doesn't take up as much space on here? I don't know if the sizes are automatic when they download or if I need to be paying attention to the size.

Great use of plaids that contrast the detail of your set square--must be an original pattern? Congratulations!!

Beautiful quilt! I use Hobbs Heirloom wool all the time. I wash my quilts in the machine on gentle with cool water--then I throw them in the dryer on low heat until they are almost dry, then I lay it flat to finish. I've never had a problem but one of my friends always air dries hers.

Hi Prairie Quilter - first off - beautiful!!!! Second, you can size your photo when you include it in your post - after you link to the image, before you finish, click Options - You can choose 300 megapixals right there and it will automatically take care of it for you.

Very nice...It gives the appearance of an antique quilt...
