18 Jun I needed batting so…
Of course, I had to go to a quilt shop! I have used Quilter’s Dream Cotton batting in the “Select” weight for many of my quilts. Last year, however, I got a good deal on several pieces of another brand so I gave it a try. I wouldn’t say I don’t like it, but I’m feeling like I still like Quilter’s Dream better.
A friend of mine (Sue) works at a quilt shop about 30 minutes away from me and they carry Quilter’s Dream. Since I didn’t make my plans in advance I didn’t know if Sue was working today, but I drove on over to The Material Girls in Dearborn anyway. Sue wasn’t there, but the owner, Barb, had the batting in the “Request” weight, so I decided to go with that.
Naturally, since I was there, I needed to check out the fabric selection 🙂 The cream print is “Kangaroo Fan” by Nambooka (M&S Textiles, Australia), the next three are Lonni Rossi for Andover Fabrics and the black is “Authentic” by Sweetwater for Moda. I’ve been in a grey and mustard mood and how could I pass up that Authentic with text!
Now to figure out the back of my Robert Kaufman No Prints Allowed quilt. Do you like to make pieced backs, think you should make pieced backs or just use whatever one fabric you have enough of?

After piecing my tops I don't care to spend to much time on piecing the back!!! Love your fabric finds!

Batting – that's something I'm hoping I'll be buying soon, very soon

Gorgeous fabrics! I am also liking the mustardy yellows right now, they are hard to resist. I'm excited to see everyone's challenge quilts! Personally, I almost always piece the back of my quilts. I don't think it's a must, but I love for quilts to be reversible, and I like when the pattern or fabrics from the front tie in with the back.
