Home Is Where My Story Begins

Star Quilt

The fun, bright, start quilt is finished!  I made this for one of my kindergarten teacher friends, who is ready to have baby #2 any day now.  I love the bright colors and the striped accent fabric!  She thought it looked very “Eric Carle-ish”.  It’s so hard to pick fabrics for someone else!  I’m glad she liked it.
I tried a new product with this quilt.  I used fusible batting.
Fusi-Boo Bamboo Fusible Batting: 60x60"

It was a different texture than fusible fleece and it was a little more stiff than my Warm and Natural batting.  It was thin, like Warm and Natural, and I LOVED not having to pin before quilting!  I would definitely use this product again!

Are you a quilter?  Have you tried fusible batting?  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite brand?

Happy quilting!

    Love it! My mom is a quilter, sadly I did not get the sewing gene. 🙁 I just have to be real nice to her so she can make me and the kids nice, warm quilts.

    I haven't tried the fusible batting, but like the sound of it. You said it was stiffer, but did it end up being soft once you finished the quilting? Thanks for sharing!
