I've decided I want to try hand quilting a whole cloth and have some questions. Do you use batting between the top and bottom just like in a regular quilt? Do you match the color of your thread to the fabric or can you choose a different color thread? Which is best? This will be about 22"x22" so fairly small. That way I can build up to a larger one. I've always admired the whole cloth and told myself I could do it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
