So, I finished the top of my LOVE quilt. The more I work with it, the more I fall in love with it. I had planned on bringing it with me to visit my grandma, but it was not finished in time, and in retrospect, is a much more complicated project than I appreciated. So... I have a couple of questions, and would love your input. Firstly, what kind of batting do you all use? I can choose from the fuzzy polyester stuff (one layer or two?), a bamboo, or an organic cotton. Secondly, I was thinking of using a solid back as the front is so crazy. Thoughts? My grandma uses sheets for the backs. I was thinking of a bright blue or green. Or, I could buy more cotton and use that... Lastly... I am a terribly quilter. The quilt I am emulating (don't want to say copying!) has hand stitching on it highlighting the letters. I was thinking of stitching in the ditch around the big squares (each square you guys made for me), and then using embroidery thread to loosely stitch on the letters. HELP!!!!
