Quilters Dream Batting

 Have you ever wondered if you were using the right batting for a project? I know I have on many projects.

So, I decided to make some batt samples, test and compare several Quilters Dream Battings.

 For the details check out my official blog

Six different batts were quilted in three quilting densities.

When done, the samples were made into a three ring book

See pictures of this process on my official blog

Quilting with your Walking Foot

Before I ventured into free motion quilting, I quilted all quilts with a walking foot, but it was simple let's get it done kinda quilting.

So, I was thrilled when offered a class to kick it up a notch!

I am having fun and learning a lot in Jacquie Gering's class Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot
