Zigzag part one - non natural wadding, straight line quilting on both diagonals and vertical, flannel back, narrow blue binding. This one is really light and puffy, it will keep its shape no matter how much its washed.
Zigzag part two - 100% cotton batting, quilting has been done with vertical zigzags, flannel back, wider polka dot binding. This one doesn't have the airy, puffy look, but it will get the supersoft and crinkly look as soon as its been washed!
And finally, The Nicey Jane Quilt - 100% cotton through and through, flannel back, ditch quilting and a little decorative highlight stitching on the frame blocks. This time I've washed and tumble dried before sending, so it looks exactly like its always going to look, if you get what I mean... Now you can see the crinkly look I've been wittering on about!
I have to apologise for the really poor photos. And that's after me playing with them for ages on the editing thingy. I must, I will try and do better in future. Its stupid, in retrospect, to not try harder with the photos, I mean, it's the last time I see the quilts, I should take better pics for my records! But when it comes down to it I always seem to be in a hurry to get it down to the post office the second its finished. Probably something to do with the fact that my head is always full of half a dozen other quilts in planning...
Anyway, I will practice this week and see if I cant come up with a better way/place to do it. And I'll have help too. Mum is coming to stay with me for a week! I cant wait :-) A whole week just the two of us (and Ellie cat too obviously), I feel spoiled rotten already! I'm gonna sound like such a mummy's girl in this post, and probably the next one or two... but I don't care. Just for the records my dad's completely awesome too, he's just not that into spending hours with fabric in a cupboard! It'll be a bit of a squeeze fitting two in there, but I'm looking forward to every minute of it.
