Double Batting

This quilting provided a new experience for me. The customer wanted double the batting, so I used two layers of her batting and did a simple meander. The quilt was heavy and wonderful….very cozy indeed!

Other than trying to get both layers of batting to lay flat as I rolled and quilted, it was a good experience. I learned that I could do it! I used a #19 titanium needle because in addition to the two layers of fabric and the two layers of batting, there were spots on the quilt where another layer of fabric had been fused over the first layer of fabric.  Good thing I have a heavy-duty Gammill!
