Simple Snuggle Quilts

These quilt tops came from my client, Julie, who wanted them for her own snuggly enjoyment. She was adamant that they should be sparsely quilted with very puffy batting, so I used Hobbs PolyDown, the puffiest batting I carry. I haven't used this batting very much, so I'm hoping this 100% polyester batting wears nicely for her. All quilting was hand-guided.

Both quilts were constructed of scrap fabrics that Julie had been given over the years. The backing she provided is a flannel sheet with striking flowers.

The first one seemed to be made of densely woven, thicker fabric, like upholstery fabric or perhaps drapery or table cloths. It is bright and cheerful. Julie wanted the quilting to be large-scale stippling, with outlining around the birds in the fabric. 

The second quilt top was made of alternating squares of cotton and chenille. I quilted large-scale swirls. This is going to be such a cuddler!
