In my earlier post, I have shown you my #1 levitating jewel box quilt top and shared the quilt design process. I have mentioned that I want to make two complementary quilts. The first one has grey fabric (Kona Solid in silver) for the background. The second one is with a warm light beige (Kona Solid in Eggshell) background fabric.
I finally pieced the top and prepared a quilt sandwich. I use the ironing board to pin rows or longer quilt top sections together. I can raise the board higher than “normal” table height. And I do not have to bend over when pinning the sections together. And do I use a lot of pins!
For these two quilts, I decided to use wool wadding for two reasons. 1) to try out something new (to me) and 2) cotton wadding is not warm enough for me. I have ordered at Cottonpatch a king size of Quilters Dream Wool. This wool wadding is very soft and it is higher than the cotton one. It was a pleasure to prepare and pin the quilt sandwich.
I will quilt both quilts using the walking foot in diagonal lines. I have marked the lines using a long ruler and a Hera marker.
Not yet sure if I need to add some more stitching between the marked lines. I am not keen on dense quilting and I can always decide later if the quilt needs more stitching.
Thanks for visiting and happy quilting!
