Blinky...no worries...we'll be hanging around!!
Kathy, yes, it did shrink a little bit from the trapunto. I used a high loft Poly bat (its what I have here without shopping). I'm thinking now the if I continue along those lines, I will just sew my pre-cut tris into the quilt, then do the trapunto...then quilt. It will be just the border, so not all that difficult to handle. When my "test" fully dried..it does look good so we'll see when I "get there" how I feel about it. I'm quilting on tri # 41 and I've almost gotten 1 section of the batting sewn together, so I'm moving forward! Yippee!!
Lesley...awwww...go ahead and grin all the time..it just makes people wonder what you're up to! :lol:
