What a fabulous quilt! I love the loft you have with that batting. I have a hard time getting that look, so now I know to try that type of batting. She'll love having this quilt and it will be with her her entire life.

It's beautiful and your quilting is totally awesome, no wonder it took two years to finish.

Thank you. I don't remember what the exact loft was, but I went with the highest loft that was still marked as good for hand quilting on the Dream Cotton package. I will use this loft from now on for all my blanket quilts. It was incredibly easy to quilt on, but I stab stitch hand quilt rather than do a rocking stitch. It might be harder for a rocking stitch.
