For as many Fridays as I can I will try to post on a "quilty crime". While there are no "quilt police" there are, in my opinion, things that can be considered a crime in the quilting world. Hang with me each Friday as I come up with a quilty crime in my little world.
I am NOT a fan of packaged batting. It's been rolled up, folded up, stretched and the only thing that looks good is what you can see through the unprinted areas of the packaging.
All 9,720 square inches of this batting has been rolled, folded and mangled up to fit into that plastic bag by the manufacturer who does not care about it laying flat on your quilt.
when I open the package this is what I see.....and you REALLY need to click on the photo for a closer look!
Okay, so let's just lay the quilt on top of all of this and get quilting!!
Sorry gals, can't do it. To get the best results possible for the both of us, I must (gently) tug, pull, press, iron, or whatever other means I can do to get this lumpy, bumpy, ugly stuff to lay flat.
I will do the best I can, but you see this is where I begin. Do yourself and your quilt a favor and invest in the best batting that you can. Buy it off of the roll, one folded seam is much easier to work with than all of this.
Yup, packed batting should be a crime!
that's it for today,
thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say..........
