I was really keen to get on and quilt my diamonds quilt, but as luck would have it the batting in my stash wasn't quite big enough! I put in an online order for some of my favourite 100% cotton stuff which turned up today, but in the meantime I found some Hobbs "Premium" 80/20 cotton/poly at my local Hobbycraft store. Not being a fan of anything polyester I was a bit dubious but thought it worth a try as it seems to be popular. I tried it out on the 30's top I made last year and it worked fine. It's rather "puffier" than plain cotton and feels like it will be warmer, so I think this one will make a lovely sofa throw for snuggling under in the winter :)
Being a bit thicker and a fairly big quilt it was quite a job to do on my machine, but I managed in the end and feel pretty pleased with myself!
The thread was a variegated pink and green quilting one which adds a bit of interest.
Now I need to choose some fabric for the binding, or maybe I'll get on and quilt my other one first?
Who knows, the other unfinished ones might get done while I'm in the mood!
