Denim Update #3

Temporary Design Wall on the closet doors
I got a temporary design board up using some stick on velcro and a crib size piece of batting. I did try to make a larger one with a queen size batting I bought way back last year when I started my first quilt. Needless to say, I am thoroughly dissatisfied with the Mountain Mist brand because the batting is literally PAPER THIN with even THINNER spots all over it. It looks like poorly made handmade paper.

Anyhow, I am 16 squares short of  the design I want. Friend Bellezza and I figured out that the 6x6 pattern I had initially drafted would be a KING size quilt. It doesn't look like it'll be that big...but looks can be deceiving I guess.

That is so gonna be tied cause I am not machine quilting that monster on my domestic. 

I need to cut and starch more denim strips! I might have to hit up a second hand store if I run out.

What the hell is this?!! It looks like paper!!
That's not batting! 

Look at all the thin places on this pathetic excuse for batting!!! OH! I am just so disgusted. The entire thing is paper thin to boot. Nothing there to insulate OR add any weight to a quilt. 

Note to all those out there....AVOID the purple packaged Mountain Mist brand of shitty batting. Yes, that IS my humble opinion. Never buying it again. I'm sticking to my Warm & Natural brand.

Until next time...

  1. I have experienced those paper thin batting pieces and its so very frustrating. I do think your denim will serve nicely for those cold WI nights. Its going to be a stunning quilt that you will enjoy all the days of your life.


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
