Baby Quilts

Last week I posted about a couple baby quilts I had started. I finished the tops and loaded both on the long arm at the same time. 

I quilted one with a pantograph called Techno. 

 The other got my random grid treatment. I used Glide thread, which I love, and Warm and White batting which I no longer care for. I find it too flat.


Loading two tops at a time seems to work well. If would have been even better if I used the same panto on both. I hope to have these two bound and finished before we leave town.

Linking up with Free Motion By the River.

    Your productivity continues to astound me! Cute quilts both. You mentioned no longer preferring Warm and White. Do you have a new favorite batting?

    Katy,
    Did you use the same backing for both or was there a break between the two tops? If there was a break how did you keep the backings taut (not that they are ever really too taut!) in the middle of your two projects?

    I love that pantogram. Such a cool design for a simple but eyecatching quilt. Would love to hear what batting you would use instead of warm and white.

    I had wondered if two smaller quilts could be loaded on a long arm at the same time! I can see where using the same pattern would have been a bit easier. I really like the Techno pattern.

  5. Great idea…two quilts at the same time. Techno is a great pattern.

    Nice job. The quilt looks wonderful with that quilting design. I’ve had some luck loading two quilts at a time — one after another with a long backing. Is that how you did it? Oops… not you did them side by side. Very good that you could do them that way but two different pantos? Crazy girl! As I said I load a long backing and then load a quilt. When that one is done I add a new batting and top and keep going. I have to be very careful with bigger quilts because I have a fairly small long arm. 18″ and I really only have about 14″ of space to quilt. Wonderful job on your quilts.
