deja vu - arcadia quilt 2.0



here we go again.. the arcadia quilt for my parents, second try.
this time with cotton batting because the first one bearded like hell. after unpicking the first version (sigh) i put it together as careful as possible. Anyhow, it got a little smaller at the sides because top and back were already cut to the same size. a bit wonkier, too, because i streched the fabric a quite a bit to fit both parts together.

i did a little more quilting than on the first try: straight horizontal lines, again, plus some squares and extra lines at the sides.

although it was quite a lot of work i must say i am happy i did it because the quilt is much better now: it´s not bearding anymore, quite soft and my quilting is certainly better than the first try.
it is just too bad it won´t be as warm and light as with a wool batting..

  1. Your quilt is lovely. Did you use yardage or jelly rolls? I have an arcadia jelly roll and two charm packs I can't wait to use. Nice job!
