Cotton batting



I know I haven't posted for about 12 months but I have been making some quilts. And Amy is having another quilt festival thanks Amy for letting me join in. This quilt I made with some help from my fellow workers.
They made the heart blocks at each end of the quilt. We have given it to a friends daughter. She has been unwell and we hope this will be a comfort for her. I had fun quilting this quilt and trying out different quilting patterns. I used cotton batting instead of the usual polyester. I know it is a bit more expensive but if that is the reason for the better quilting finish it is worth using.
