Pinning Progress

I got the layers trimmed and pinned.

I couldn't decide between a fluffy polyester batting, or some Warm & Natural cotton batting. So I compromise, W&N with a low loft polyester on top of it. It was a weight that I'm happy with, and hopefully it'll have the fluff and drape I'm shooting for after I wash it.

No yoga classes needed for me, weird pinning angles cover all the moves. ;)

And I decided to go with my husband's suggestion, brown thread. "Milk Chocolate" to be exact, and I think that's a great name for the thread, cuz you certainly can imagine yourself wrapped up in it with a mug of hot chocolate. :)

Maybe I'll even have it all quilted tonight! Dare I hope?!

Wow!! I'm still playing with blocks and you're pinned??? I recommend you try silk batting at least once is you want a great drape- that's what I ordered for my pineapple blossom quilt :)

So what are you going to make with your extra pieces inquiring ( ok nosey ) minds want to know?
