I just got a quilt back from the LAQ and it's beautiful...but not exactly soft and cuddly. (After I finish the hand work on the binding, I'll wash it.) In this case it's not important because it's a bed quilt, but I usually make lap quilts, which I want to feel really nice.
So what are the factors in assuring it will be soft and cuddly?
I typically use warm and natural batting...and try for good quality fabric. I suspect the density (?) of the quilting makes a difference...but would appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thanks so much!
