Silent Sunday September 20, 2015 Related 9 responses to “Silent Sunday” Your bittersweet is lovely,it was always one of my mothers’ favourites. Question: I have a large SW quilt top finished & have to buy some batting.I have a 550QE Bernina which does a lovely job FMQ,but this quilt is so large was thinking a fairly thin batting.What would uou use?It will need to be totally washable.I think your FMQ shows a lot of practise & is totally gorgous,also appears very professional.Just found your site 3 weeks ago & it is the first thing I check out daily.Also congratulations on your 1st grandchild.No feeling like it is there?Thank you,Shirley Bamboo, soft, light, quilts like a dream, never too hot, never too cool. Shirley, My favorite batting is wool batting–fully washable, quilts beautifully! So soft! Thanks for your reply Lori but I have had bad experience with wool batting.Made 2 twin size quilts for the 2 newest of our great grandsons for this past Christmas & they bearded so badly we had to shave them with an actual safety razor.It was Legacy batting that I purchased at Nancy’s Notions. I was thinking of silk batting,some of my quilting friends have had good results. Love to see the bittersweet in bloom.It is very rare here Ahhhhhhhh….fall I so look forward to silent Sundays, your subject matter never disappoints. Gorgeous color. Beautiful picture. Thanks! Is this not also known as Pyracantha? Beautiful, for sure. Comments are closed.
