Dr Suess Quilt, Playing with my Baby and some batting questions answered...

The title of my post says it all today...

First off, is my first finish in these crazy times... 

Remember the fabric I received in my MMM swap last round???

Fabrics!!!

Well, I've put it to use...

The Dr Suess quilt for Kiddo!


And there is one happy recipient!!!


I used a woolen blanket as batting and some wonderful flannel as backing... The quilt is just so snuggly...


I love it!!! And so does Aadi... :) Thats a happy Mom too!


I'm linking up this quilt to Lily's Quilts' Fresh Sewing Day!!!

Now that I've made the quilt, there are a few more things on my to-do list for his room... Some pillowcases, some wall art, some organization bins... etc...

One of the waiting list items is wall art! I'm making a wall quilt with the same fabric...

I'm playing with my Accuquilt Go! Baby for this one... A tutorial will come up next week!

Here's a sneak peek...



And some hand sewing...


And now to the third part of my post, some batting questions answered...

In India, we do not get cotton batting! I heard a few of you gasp... I know its ridiculous, but yeah, we do not get it here.. Someone recently asked me what I used in my quilts...

I initially used a polyester batting, but I was not comfortable with the idea of using it for children... I thought about using alternatives...

I started using two layers of plain white flannel...

I also used multiple layers of muslin... But this meant a lot more tedious sandwiching process...



I then used a woolen shawl in one of my quilts and found that it was very comfortable to work with...



But that was only because the quilt was dark and busy, I could get away with it...

For Aadi's quilt, I decided to use a woolen blanket, and I'm just so happy with the result, I've already placed an order for 6 in white color!



What do you use as batting if you do not get in your part?
