I’m not sure what this pattern is, so I’m calling it the baby quilt from Canada. This is such a cute little quilt. Made from flannel, I love the colors. It looks so soft and cuddly. On this quilt, I used wool as the batting. With baby quilts, I feel like you need to use a natural textile, like wool or cotton. Burn tests have shown that wool and flame retardant battings like Quilters Dream Angel are much safter than a poly batting or a poly blend batting. In this case, we wanted a puffiness to the quilt, so I used Quilters Dream wool. I really love their wool batting. It’s washable in cold water only (warm will make it shrink) and dry in a cool dryer.
I used lots of feathers in this one and you just want to run your hand across the top – it’s SO cuddly! The last picture shown is a new setup I have for taking quilt pictures. I’m still tweaking it, but so far it works pretty well! Best of all, it was free! I repurposed a trade show exhibit frame that our company no longer was using and it works pretty well for taking pictures. It collapses down and fits into a small bag that I can store when I’m not needing it. One of these days, I’ll have a big studio that I can keep it up all the time!
Beautiful job! I have seen a few of this quilted and this is simply the best. Thanks for sharing. You are an inspiration to me – I too have a Voyager/Hinty
