Finishing My Solstice Quilt

The Front and back of my Solstice Quilt

My Solstice quilt has been hanging on my wall.  Waiting for its batting to come.  It finally did.  Ellen, who bought the quilt, asked if I could use a high-loft wool batting in it instead of the thin cotton batting I usually use.

I want it to be warm and fluffy, Ellen wrote me.  She wants to snuggle under it on these cold winter days.

I had a hard time finding the right batting, but Ellen emailed me some companies that made it and I decided on a company in Minnesota.

Today I sewed the backing together, using one of the squares from the old quilt top that I used  pieces from on the front of the quilt.

I’m looking forward to working with the wool batting.  I’ve used a polyester high loft batting before, but never wool.  I’m curious to see how it looks and feels when it’s done.
