Got the red and white quilt top quilted with meandering loops now for the binding. Loaded the blue and brown civil war quilt on the frame and when I was looking for the batting I came across some wool batting going to try it on this top. Connecting Threads has batting on sale now till I think the 20th so we will see if I'll be ordering more.
I needed some red thread for the red and white top and all I had was some Aurifil thread boy it sure has lots of lint, I use Connecting Threads Essential and I really like it and a good price. Will post a picture of my 1st 2012 finish.
