It’s the first time I’ve ever bought a roll of batting. 30 yards, 96 inches wide. It’s going to last me a while.
I’ve always gotten individual bags of batting big enough for a queen size quilt. Because my quilts are rarely a standard size, I would use whatever was extra on my potholders and wall hangings.
I’ve never had a lot of waste, when it comes to my batting. I’ll zigzag stitch it together when the scarps get too small. But now I think it will be even easier and I’ll have less piecing to do.
I think part of the reason I never got a big roll of batting before was because it’s a big investment. Buying all that batting means I’m going to have to sell a lot of work.
I guess I’m not worried about that anymore. I know I’m going to use up all that batting and probably quicker than I imagine.
And I also believe that I’m going to be able to sell the work I make. That’s a good feeling. In the past I’d be superstitious about saying that out loud. But I’ve decided not to believe in those old superstitions anymore. That’s how superstitions work isn’t it? You have to believe in them for them to come true.
