My batting is going to be Hobbs Tuscany Collection 90/10 Silk/Poly. Wendy Sheppard uses this batting and she says it's easy to work with on domestic machines and it quilts up very soft and cuddly, even when it's quilted very densely. I've never tried it before, so I'm looking forward to it. You can read what Wendy has to say about this batting in her Thread Talk article here on her Ivory Spring blog.
As of this writing I have 130 blocks completed and only 20 remaining to be sewn. Then I have to figure out how I'm going to lay the blocks out and sew them together. According to UPS, I'll have my backing fabric and batting in my hot little hands by the end of the day on Thursday the 15th, but I doubt I'll be ready to do anything with it other than prewash the backing fabric. We have a busy week, with Night of the Notables at the boys' school on Tuesday evening, then a community theatre production of A Christmas Carol on Thursday night, and classroom holiday parties for which I've promised to bake. Bernie and I have to do some Christmas shopping this week, too, while the boys are still in school.
I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful holiday season with your loved ones!
