My friend Kathy is way ahead of the game by having me finish this beautifully pieced and appliqued wallhanging well before the Christmas rush. It’s a gorgeous quilt and I had so much fun doing the quilting. Since it is a wallhanging, I used 80 %cotton/20% poly batting. It will have a flatter appearance (good for a wallhanging) and it has a little weight. It’s also important that the quilting be evenly distributed throughout the quilt. If I do heavy quilting in one area, I really need to do pretty heavy, close together quilting throughout. Otherwise it could hang a little wonky.
