    King sized '6 hour quilt', pattern question

    I want to replace the ugly bedspread in my RV...lol. I am thinking of using Kaye Wood's, '6 hour quilt', pattern. My RV bed is a king sized. I want the quilt to be nice and warm. I am thinking of using,
    Warm & Natural for my batting.
    Would this sound like a good choice for batting for this pattern and warmth? Thank you for your input.

    I chose this pattern because it is a quilt as you go pattern. I have made a small version before and found it very easy. Due to the size of a king sized quilt I felt it would be an easy quilt.

    What kind of batting did you use for the small quilt you made in the past? I have made the baby quilt version of this pattern several times and I have used a very lofty poly batting. I figured it will be washed a lot, and I think it looks better thick and puffy.

    You could use the warm & nat and/or wool. that would be nice & toasty

    I did a similiar method but mine had a large squarer shape centre. So from centre grew quickly. For a RV I would use a good batting but what about a lovely soft fleece backing?

    use warm fabrics with your warm & natural- the batting is a good choice for the type of quilt- I've made a number of the 6-hour quilts- if you use flannel you will have a nice warm quilt

    I have used warm and natural for the 6 hour quilt and was not as pleased with it as when I used a combination of poly and cotton. I think the quilt is meant to be "fluffy" and the warm and natural is too flat

    If I want a warmer quilt I do use the Warm and Natural batting but also back the quilt with a pieced flannel backing, perfect for cold winter nights in northern Wisconsin.

    If you could afford it I would go with wool.

    I love everyone's thoughts and ideas! Now I have several great ideas to ponder before I jump in to making this quilt. I agree, that the warm and natural may be too flat looking.. however, if you have ever attempted to tuck in sheets, blankets and quilt at the head of an RV bed you will realize there isn't room for even a toothpick to be tucked in...LOL so may warm and natural would be best in that instance. LOVE the idea of fleece or flannel as backing!! I know wool is perfect for warmth but I am allergic to it, so that won't work but a great idea!! Thank you sew much everyone!

    I think it would make a great RV quilt. I think Warm & Natural would be a great choice because of the length between stitching, is lovely to machine quilt and it makes a nice warm quilt.

    My Kaye Wood quilt is still in the "works" about 1 year so far, I am using silks and fluffy batting. It is put together with my serger. It is about the size of a baby quilt now. People have given me pieces of fabric and I had some, I don't care about the color, all colors will blend if you have enough.

    Silk batting would also be a good choice.

    I had not seen the 6 hour quilt until now when I checked the link. Is the backing pieced also? I can't figure out how it's quilt as you go if it's pieced on the back too.

    quitingbuddy; Yes, the back is also pieced. It is cut the same size as the front and batting.

    I have made too many to count crib size using this pattern. I used flannel for top and bottom, W&N for batting. They turned out great!!! Because flannel tends to fray so easily, after stitching each row, I serged the edges. That may just be me being over cautious.

    I have the pattern and if you think you can do it, go for it. King size is a very large quilt. But I wouldn't depend on getting it done in 6 hours.

    Ya know.. if you want it even toastier you could use corduroy to make the quilt with or use a nice flannel on the backing in addition to the batting. A corduroy quilt would surely chase the chills away. I know it isn't a standard quilting material but it is warm and soft I have a corduroy quilt in the works.
