    Hobbs 80/20 Batting Question

    Here is a quilt that I have hand quilted using the Northwoods Botanical Line. I have used Hobbs 80/20 for the batting. The package says to quilt every 2 - 4 inches. My floral blocks in this quilt are close to 5 inches. Do you think I would be OK not quilting anything in these blocks. If you think I should do some quilting, what would you suggest I do.

    I would probably echo the flowers and leaves.

    ​SITD should be fine for the checkered part but I would add outline quilting in the large white blocks.

    Beautiful quilt! Follow the manufacturer's directions. I think crosshatching would look great in those squares.

    Yes the binding is already on the quilt. It is basically done except for what to do about the quilting in the blocks.

    Beautiful quilt. As others have said, follow the manufacturer's suggestions...As for the quilting, I agree with the echo stitching.

    If you wouldn't mind, who's fabric line is this that you used?
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    Very beautiful quilt. I would outline the flowers in the big blocks just to be safe.
