Almost finished

Boy Stacked coin

I had these two quilts pinned and ready to quilt for a couple weeks now. I finally sat down and got them quilted on Saturday. Don't why I waited so long. It's not like it was hard or time consuming. I just did some straight stitching in a large grid. Nothing exciting. Not complicated. I didn't want the quilting to take away from the simplicity of the patterns. Just enough to hold it all together. I have to say that I LOVE the cotton batting. It is so much easier to work with. It doesn't shift like the polyester batting does and it glides through the needle nice and smooth. I also like how this batting needs only to be quilted 10" apart.
