So I'm making a new quilt for CJ for Christmas, a small one he'll be able to drag around with him. High contrast teal and white squares, and orange fleece dots around the edges.
Fabrics for CJ's Quilt
Here's the plan, which will finish at 30" square.
EQ7 Plan for CJ's Quilt
Design Wall 11/30/2015
Next up, I need to applique circles of fleece to the outside plain squares.
CJ was also fascinated with crinkly Baby Paper. My original plan was to put pieces of cellophane behind a couple of the plain squares, and maybe behind one of the dots, for added crinkly texture.
DH thinks I should not put the cellophane in. He thinks the crinkly noise might keep CJ awake when he should be sleeping.
So, your opinion please: Crinkly or quiet?
For the backing I have teal minkee, for even more texture. What kind of batting do you recommend with minkee? I want something as soft and drapey as possible, but I need something to keep the teal minkee from showing through the front, so I don't want to omit batting altogether. I'm thinking of using a flannel sheet. What do you recommend?
