These are my second, third and fourth quilts. These are for 1 yr old granddaughter, 2 yr old grandson, 4 yr old grandson. The cushion is for a dear friend who has given me loads of encouragement. The black quilt is a WIP, almost finished. I used polyester batting on these, easier to wash and much lighter than my birdie house quilt, where I used cotton 'Warm and Natural' batting. Thank you for all the fabulous tips on QB. I love it. You are all so clever.
