Thanks everyone. I can't wait for my Aurifil variegated thread to come in so I can start quilting. Going to have to move my machine onto my cutting table instead if my sewing table so I have more room to layout. Wish I had a longarm.

Yay Donna! You got it done! I think I recall it was your first PP project? You did well, and that little man will love it!

Yes Springermom it was my first pp. It got easier as I went along. I like it would definitely do another pp again.

Donna - great job!

Springer Mom - I was going to say something too like Agnes - about the batting... for old fashioned style quilts - that kind of crinkle up you use 100% cotton - so if you want it smoother try a partial polyester batting... a lot of people use 80/20 hobbs batting.

Thea:

That is my batting of choice and the package says 3 to 5% shrinkage. It is certainly all of that if you do the whole cycle of washing and drying at medium. I don't baby my quilts in any fashion. I recently put all my smaller pieces of  batting into a fabric laundry bag and washed them on delicate in a HE washer and dried them on a similar setting. It certainly cut back on the shrinkage when I washed  the wall hanging after quilting. I believe unless you use 100% polyester dense loft batting, something like Pellon makes, and may even call an interfacing, you may have not puckering but batting expansion as it fluffs up with each washing and your finished item will not remain perfectly flat and smooth. Just my honest opinion.

Looks great!  I love the way the background changes from light to dark.

Agnes, my batting of choice is Quilter's Dream - 100% cotton - the Select thickness.  Request is the thinnest and I have used it when I make table runners or small circular quilts to go on my round table.  I prefer Select for my larger quilts that I make for the beds or my large MR wall hangings.  It shrinks up just enough for me and I don't have to worry about quilting every 2" - I am a dog with a bone sometimes, I first used it about 10 years ago and liked it so now when I need to buy it I buy in bulk so I get a really good price for it.  In my quilts, I don't want to use polyester... just me... I want them to be all natural.  Again, just me!
