Beach Quilt for Wedding

Happy New Year! We are still recovering from a fantastic wedding last night, complete with balloon drop on midnight. The wedding present was done just in time, but we were having one hell of a wind storm which forced me inside for photos…img_10651

don’t mind the bird in the corner, I had to get my head well into the ceiling fan to take this picture.

With every quilt I learn a new lesson, This time I learned that the 95% cotton batting really does shrink and make a “poofy” quilt after it is washed. I had only used it on baby quilts until now and the shrinking was hardly noticable, but with the big squares on this one, it was very obvious. So, beware the cotton batting!
