Also, how is the texture of it in the quilt and how does it wash up?
I thought about wool batting, but it can be expensive. Thank you in advance!

I'm too old to crawl around on the floor anymore, so any helpful hints, suggestions would be appreciated!

Hope this helps everyone whose been asking for more information. Glad you all have enjoyed my quilt. I will attach a copy of it as well so

So this quilt came together thanks to you all showing us new ways of arranging simple blocks. This was my 1st DP9 too. Hopefully the colors will come over true. Its a beige background, blues and browns blocks with solid black as the coins. I also found a backing with a black background and lots of bicycles.
