I may have to change this from a crochet and grand-girls blog to a quilting and grand-babies blog, especially since I love posting pix of My Boy Travis.
Crochet is still happening but quilting is where my energies - and heart - are right now.
Remember the black and white quilt top I made for Breanne and Garrett for Christmas? I finally got the backing put together and mailed it off to a long arm quilter in Oklahoma. Less than a week later, it was back and I think it looks fabulous.
I opted for the 4-ounce polyester batting this time; hubby wants a 'thicker' quilt when I make his and I wanted to see what difference there was from the cotton batting I prefer.
After a quick wash and dry, the batting puffed up nicely - much more so than cotton - giving this a lumpy, bumpy affect. I still prefer my cotton, but hubby says this is closer to what he wants.
Hope Bre's family gets years of use from this!
