Lori Kennedy Quilt WORKING AHEAD

While you are working on Block Three, you might want to start thinking about batting and creating your backing.  I like my wall hangings to be rather flat, so I plan to choose a low loft batting like Warm and Natural Cotton batting or 80/20 Warm which is 80% cotton and 20% polyester.

I usually piece my backing with medium sized scraps.  Because my quilt top is so colorful, I decided to tone it down on the back with a mix of gray fabrics.  I prefer to wash my backing fabrics–I don’t want the back to shrink and cause distortion of my quilt if I choose to wash it later.  Also, consider starching the backing fabric–it will help it slide when it’s time to…my favorite…FREE MOTION QUILT!!!!

  1. I love Warm and Natural batting. I just bought my first white Warm and Natural, excited to try it too! I love buttons too!!!

  2. I love Buttons! Tell you why, my mom had a tin of them all types and colors and when I was a young girl, I used to take them out and make “familys” and stories out of the matching ones. I would play like that for hours. I guess it didn’t take much to entertain me..lol. But one of my fondest memories.

  3. I most often use 80/20 batting and I love the one made by Pellon. It’s affordable and I find that it has a very even thickness — no thin places like I’ve had in some other brands.

  4. Because I don’t live in an urban setting, my batting choices are limited. I would love to try a wide variety. I’d love to get my hands on some wool.

  5. When I was little I used to play with my mother’s beautiful buttons. I still have some of them. I love buttons! I use Hobbs 80/20 batting usually.

  6. my favorite batting is Hobbs 80/20 but very hard to get here without breaking the bank, I been trying the poly batting it is working out thus far. I love buttons

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
