Wow they are beautiful. I am constantly amazed at how much you accomplish. The men are going to love them. Hugs. Nan
Thank you Nan, have a Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas too, as it's fast approaching.
Well done Toogie what a difference in the batting I would never have thought but seeing it side by side like that it's quite a big difference
Okay, I do have to correct myself. I looked back at my bags. Hobby Lobby did say 'Poly-fil Extra-Loft 100% polyester Quilt Batting EXTRA LARGE for King and Oversized projects' in blue writing.
The JoAnns said, 'Poly-fil Hi-Loft 100%polyester Comforter & Quilt Batting EXTRA LARGE for King and Oversized projects in green writing.
Besides difference in price and loft was difference on package. I like the one said Comforter & Quilt batting in green.
Sorry, my mistake, I read them as the same until I looked back at empty bags.
Your quilts are lovely and Kim's label is the perfect finishing touch. That is amazing how much the batting differed from one store to the other, but I guess you get what you pay for, huh? As for the snow - I can send you all the snow you want, by the way! We've had 3 days straight of the stuff! ❄❄❄❄☃😕
No, the snow you can keep. I don't like cold.
The deer Kim digitized is perfect for my quilts. I made all the info for the others and put with the deer head, so when I finish the next 3 quilts I will be ready to add labels.Thanks for looking.
Well worth the effort and the lessons learned from your experience! I've learned to go by the weight of the batting and stay with the brands that I like. I found that at some shops something labeled as a 5 oz batting can either be nice and soft, or thick and stiff. So, one still has to be careful. Thick or thin bat can be a personal choice. In this case, both quilts are absolutely fantastic and definitely would appeal to the guys and woodsy people. The label is one of the best I've seen! I like both quilts for different reasons...and if someone doesn't like one, you can send it to me!
lol-I will sure tell them!
I haven't long started quilting big quilts and what you really want is sometimes hard to find. My husband likes the fluffiness of high loft. When quilting in the ditch it remains fluffy, but when stippling or meandering it flattens, especially if you do it close.
Great work done!!!
Thank you Sonja!
WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE WHOLE QUILT
I'll try to take a pic.....
LOVE THE LABLE AND THE COLORS PERFECT FOR BOYS EVEN IF THEY ARE IN THERE 40'S.
Almost 50's-lol-the colors are masculine alright, thanks
Great job on these quilts, Toogie...Your label is perfect with them too! Such a big difference in batting. I bet you will not be buying that brand of "high loft" from Hobby Lobby again...
No, when I buy high loft I want high loft so it will be JoAnns with a coupon! I think I got it 60 % off, their last great batting sale. Thanks again for sharing in our christmas!
Both will keep them warm. Great job on the two king sizes. I would never attempt.
After quilting the first one I thought , well, it wasn't so bad. Then I started piecing the second King. Started getting sick and from then on until I quilted it, it was a struggle. No enjoyment, having to press on, because I have more to make, Lord willing. Thanks
They'll love them!
I hope so! They all wanted this deer panel. (Panel can be seen on the Queen size I made in Community/Sewing.)Thanks!
Outstanding work Toogie. Your boy and nephew will love them and kudos to Kim too, great design. Love Chris
Thanks Chris! It seems funny when I read my 'boy' because he is 49 years old!-lol- Our nephew is about 2 years older. I was very close to his mom and still think of her often and he has always been like our second son. He offered a prayer for our anniversary party and when he gave a little speech, his voice got husky with emotion. He said he was always close to us but thought of us like his parents too, now.
The saying ' You get what you pay for ' certainly applies here.Such a shame that the thick one looks so thick & cuddly in comparison to the other one,when you put the same amount of time & effort ,into both quilts.
I know and if I had known there was a better one, I would have used it in the first one, even if I had to use the flatter one in something else. I could have doubled it up and made it for a smaller quilt. Oh well, there is another saying that applies. 'No use crying over spilled milk'.
Awesome Job the Two of u did hugs Carolyn
Looking good. I guess they took out $20.00 worth of batting on the one from Hobby Lobby. The label is so special thanks to Kim. and your stitching.
Yes, you are correct the deer made the labels! I knew when I saw it that it would be the perfect design to add to my labels.
You should audition for a comedian Angie-lol-The batting is such a difference, I couldn't believe the manufacturer could label it high loft. Very disappointing after all that work. The way they have it rolled up in the bags they purposely fold the edge inside so you can feel the thickness until you open it up. Then it's too late, because you would never be able to get 120 x 120 batting back inside the bag to return it!
'CAN'T feel the difference, until you open it up'
Both are great. Love the labels. Hugs
Thank you Shirley
