MATH and cutting instructions for the two different flannels going on the back of the quilt. Elaine and Chris are crazy for their Boston Terrier, Scully, so I thought the paw prints were appropriate.
I purchased this batting at my local quilt store, primarily because it is lighter weight than cotton and can be quilted up to 12" apart. It is my intention to use only the organic shape of a ginkgo leaf and not have to do any straight line quilting. Anyone have experience with this brand? It is a favorite of the quilt shop owner.
I picked up a few sample ginkgo leaves from my front yard, blown in from the neighbor's tree across the street. I like the "split" ones the best but the fan shape is also pleasing. I may just be able to free motion them all instead of my original plan of drawing them on freezer paper. Or I may start with a few freezer paper ones just to get into a rhythm. My quilting method is generally ITIS (I'll Try It & See). My seam ripper will probably see some action either way!
