i had a customer quilt due tomorrow. due to some rush jobs, i was stuck quilting it today. it turned into a nightmare. the customer had bought thick polyester batting from a local fabric store, it was seriously an inch thick
when the customer came, she asked if i could somehow quilt a heart somewhere in the quilt. mom piped up and said it would be cute to quilt a double heart in each of the 4 corners. i ended up quilting them on a regular sewing machine(using rainbow thread-it worked great!) this is the back of the hearts-i wasn't thrilled with how the front turned out. it was so hard turning the quilt for the heart because of the thick batting. mom's going to owe me for that lol!
all in all, i'm not happy with it. i used Medium Meander by Trillium house(LOVE that meander pattern!) the batting created waves/puckers in the quilt-i actually wore out a titanium needle on the machine. the thickness of the batting distorted the Betty Boop squares a bit as well. i'm worried the customer will be unhappy with it. she wanted a puffy quilt and we told her the batting may be an issue. i can't change it now
edited to add that she loved the quilt!
