    Batiks - Falls' Paintbrush, first finish for 2015

    Just finished the binding yesterday on this BOM that was actually called Mum Medallion, but mine is done in all batiks (so there isn't any mum flowers). It measures 80 x 96. The sashing is actually a dark brown and the quilting is done in a medium brown thread. I used the new batting called Warm & Plush. I can tell it does have a bit of pouf compared to W & N but won't know how much until it's washed. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful quilt!!! I would also like to hear what you think of that batting. I have been thinking about using it instead of w&n.
