A design for an applique quilt … love it.

Love the little bit of quilting too.

When I started quilting it was essential to quilt heavily as most wadding we could buy was not bonded like modern wadding. I find it a bit sad that quilts are now quilted densely, which makes them stiff … and every line of quilting takes away some of the warmth as well as the comfort.

    I totally agree about the density of quilting. It looks wonderful but definitely takes away from the softness and drapability and comfort of a quilt.

    • Cindy,

      I have to admit that one of the warmest quilts I have made is not even quilted, just tied! Thick wadding and 8 ply yarn … and it works well, and has been washed often.
