    In the last few days I tried out a new batting, a Bamboo/Cotton blend, 50%/50%. Maybe you are interested in how it looks like when it is handquilted. I didn't prewash the batting.

    I see that you want to keep me hypnotized.
    You must have 100s of items you have done. Do you have a count? What do you do with them? You show us so many wonderful things. You would need a warehouse to store all of them.
    Very beautiful.

    Gorgeous and it looks like bamboo batting works fine;> Though some people have raised concerns about chemicals in it... I've not tried it, yet.

    Sorry, Dorothy... I hope you feel fine! I will stop right now posting pictures for today. :-)
    I think I have done about 40 or 45 wholecloth until today. Some of them hang on the wall in our house, some I made as a present, some are for exhibitions and the rest just stay in my closet. I also use them as demonstration material for my workshops.

    Well, this quilt will be a wall hanging, so I don't care so much about chemicals in it in that case. Fortunately I'm not allergic at all.

    Beautiful effect. Price wise how does it compare to warn and natural?

    i love working with the bamboo batting, it is so soft and easy to needle, and washes well too, no shrinkage, good drape...
    very nice quilting too ;)
