So, in order to ensure I get some me-sewing time in, I'll make my voile quilt backing and baste my quilt. I just bought some of the Quilter's Dream Orient Blend Select batting (part bamboo) for this very purpose. According to blog and IG friends, the bamboo batting will make this all-voile quilt drape perfectly. I am *still* deciding how I want to quilt it. Using my walking foot would be perfectly adequate. I've done some hand quilting in the past and I didn't really enjoy it any of those times... but hand quilting would be so great... I don't know.
Also, I need to decide on a binding - I think it's going to be a solid cotton fabric rather than a voile to prevent fast wear.
Linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes!
