Hi All, Thanks for the information from each of you... I really appreciate your comments! The batting I use is Hobbs Premium 80/20. This particular table mat or runner (haven't decided which format it will be yet) is to be a gift for a couple who are contemporary in their decorating style. I wanted to reduce the shrinkage as much as possible so that the finished quilt would remain less puckery, smoother, even when washed. So that's why I decided to wash the fabrics first and get the shrinking done up-front. I had not thought about the the batting until Agnes mentioned it, so will need to prewash it as well. I've learned much more about batting now, thanks to all of you! Hopefully my plan will work out!

Donna, great job! Is this the quilt that you've been commenting it reminded you of a tablecloth as you assembled the clues? You could use it for one as it would be beautiful wherever and however you use it! Very pretty!

Donna,

This is a very interesting quilt.  It really makes the eye travel through the colors.  Very nice!

Springer Mom - I would be very very careful washing the batting - it might come out one big glump of junk... most are not needed to be pre-washed - check your instructions on the package - most bats have very little shrinkage!

Mamags,It's lovely ! I think too, it would make a great tablecloth!! Get a nice size candle and some green to wrap around your candle !! A perfect winter tablecloth went you need some spring!!

🌺 You know you are a quilter when the only scraps under your table are fabric.🐾

Thanks everyone. It's growing on me. I like WeeZee's better as the elevation f colors looks better with solids. Mine takes a bit to get used to. I'm actually going to give it as a wedding present tomy nephew after I quilt it. They like modern art and this is very modern to me.

Pretty Donna!

Well, I did not get anything done on a quilt today, except I have some fabric in the wash. There is always tomorrow. :)

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

Not too much happening in the sewing room today. Other obligations got in the way such as taking hubby to doctor for post op exam (he got an A+). I did trace another block for my Vintage Tin quilt and will start the embroidery this evening. It will make 5 blocks completed. I'm leaving the biggest one along the top for last.

I used a taupe colored crayon on one block and will use it on some others in selected areas.

Spud, I have clothes in the wash! Not nearly as exciting as fabric. It's muggy today, rain is coming, and I'm not moving very fast. Of course, part of that could be the ice cream cones we treated ourselves to on the way home this afternoon.

Donna I like it. Job well done. It's a great low volume quilt. I find it very calming.
