DQS7 Progress

My quilt for DQS7 is coming along, but the deadline is coming up really soon! I have the top almost finished- I have added the turquoise border shown in this picture and I am going to add another string border today. I have big plans to embellish this with beading and embroidery if time allows. Since I foundation pieced the string blocks, it is pretty heavy already, so I was thinking of using a piece of flannel for the batting to keep it thinner and lighter, but I am not sure how that will work. Any experience with batting foundation pieced quilts would be wonderful!


  1. Alexis, This is cute. When in doubt about batting, I always turn to Hobbs 80/20, and it has never failed me yet. Happy quilting!

  2. Wow that looks amazing! I'd love to see more detail pictures.
