july 2014 giveaway
by Patricia Belyea
SEATTLE WA Two factors influence my choice of batting:
Performance I use battings that are easy to stitch—by machine or hand. Many of my quilts are stitched-in-the-ditch by machine, and then hand quilted with a big needle and heavy No 8 perle cotton thread.
The Look I’m a low-loft kind of quilter as I don’t like making puffy quilts. Flatter quilts look more modern to me.
This package of queen-size cotton batting—90″ x 108″ —is made by Hobbs, the leading US batting manufacturer. The 100% natural cotton has a soft drape. It’s needle punched for additional strength and can be quilted up to 4″ apart.
You can win this batting by adding a comment to this blog. The drawing will take place at midnight PST on July 31, 2014. The batting will then be mailed anywhere in the world.
