I'm a beginning quilter who has to do a lot by machine b/c my health's not great. I need a great, light-weight blanket for summer here in phoenix, and not able to find anything light or cool enough I've bought 2 king-sized white, cotton sheets and a king-sized piece of warm and natural batting. I was thinking that maybe sewing intersecting straight lines at 10"or less intervals would keep the batting from shifting. And I've found a nice pattern on continuous prairie points that I thought might look nice and still be done pretty easily. I'm wondering, though, if I ever wanted to come back after the blanket's completed and quilt a little, could I do that? Also, I'm looking for easy ideas for adding a little color to the internal space of the quilt.
I appreciate the help. Thanks so much!
