After almost 2 weeks of not touching my sewing machine it was kind of hard to keep my zen :D. With a 3 weeks delay for the first package (3 weeks delay, plus shipping time, plus customs) and still no batting I was having real diffculties in seeing any pink around me.

I had to stop this :D. So I cut into my almost favoite Kona ( the white is my all time favorite but, guess what, it's not here yet :(( ), some It's a Hoot and some Amy Butler and decided to give it a try.

Of course I hated it at first, I was nervous and upset but, hey, tommorow the packages will be here :) and now it looks pretty good to me :))).


So how did I do it with no batting? Fleece. I love love love it!. It's so thin and so soft! I used fleece before but didn't realise how easy it is to work with until I got used to the batting. Except from beeing poliester (just in case you only use cotton batting), it's as good as any other poli batting and much much softer than anything else. And so light... why did I wait so much for the batting?


  1. It looks great...hmm fleece...good idea.

  2. I love this! Great colors!! :) Hope your batting comes in soon!

  3. what a lovely quilt! what a great blog! so pleased I stumbled in here!


Who doesn't love a comment? Ok, maybe it's not that much fun when you have hundreds of comments at every post and you wanna answer, but you know what? I don't :)). So I have a lot of time to answer :))) Bring'em on
