Not so Top Secret Project Quilted



Sometimes things just go my way and all sorts of tasks get done. I am even amazed... as it didn't seem to start that way. I had a customer quilt on my machine that should have been done last week - but it kept going and going and going. Oh - it is such a beautiful quilt... But huge ( especially compared to the quilts of Valor).

~ Saturday nite I finished it up enough to take it off so I can turn the border and I loaded my Not so Top Secret Project quilt on the machine. This morning my Husband wanted to sleep in ( a little) for Fathers day - coming from a 5am kind of guy, I thought okay - you sleep I'll quilt... and I DID!!!

~After he woke up we headed to town for church, some ice cream, and some swimming and came back... and I ran down to quilt some more.... and Look what I finished! I used the new batting from Quilters Dream called Dream Green - it is made from recycled Plastic Bottles and I saved 13 bottles from going into the land fill. It was very nice to quilt, feels just like a polyester batt, not a whole lot of fuzz... so so far it gets an A rating in my book.

Have a good one!

I love those stolen times when I can sneak downstairs and quilt. Congratulations on another finish!

I've not heard of that batting, but LOVE the idea of it saving plastic bottles from landfil AND keeping someone warm :)

Can you tell me what you are using to bind the quilt?? No mention of it in the cutting instructions or in the final step.
