Batting issues and finished quilts











I've about run out of batting-again. In December I was down to the last bits from my bolt of warm and natural batting, so when Hancocks had batting 1/2 price over new year I bought a new roll 20 yards-90 in wide. I'm now down to 3 pieces ready for 3 big quilts and the roll is already gone. I've still got some bits that i can use for small projects like runners and such but my big quilts are going to have to wait until I can find a way to buy another roll of batting. Joann's has it on 50% off this week and they have the 40 yd rolls...so now i need to find about $200 laying around.
These 4 quilts were finished last night and I pulled them out of the dryer this morning. The first is a 45x45 baby quilt made with the "dissapearing 9-patch" pattern. Then next 2 are from a line called "under the influence of fabric." The square one is about 50x 50 and the other one is about 30x50. The yellow and blue one is 45x60 and made from left over blocks and fabric from the quilt I made one of my brothers for his wedding. He and his wife may get this to use as a wall hanging over thier bed, or it may go to the next baby that needs one.

Nice job! Gee I haven't run out of batting before but I sure am gonna try to this year!

I hope you can come up with the batting you need so that you can forge ahead.

Where is your project completion ticker?? :)

I love your quilts.

I wouldn't worry about burnout. Keep forging ahead, you will slow down when you are ready to.
