Luxe Cuddle Heather Clementine
I really like working with the Luxe Cuddle line. Heather Clementine is the perfect orange for those halloween quilts.
Don't shy away from these fabrics! They are easier to work with than Minky. Yes there still is 'fluff', but it is easily brought under control with packing tape, or lint brush, or a small hand vac.
First thing, straighten the top, and add a "leader" of cotton fabric the width of the fabric . (Could be up to 64" wide). Machine baste, and repeat for the bottom. As I prefer to have a wider lap quilt, I'll only order the length that is needed. Leave this leader on for your long arm quilter! They will thank you!!
I feel the trick to a manageable quilting project is to use a middle piece of cotton fabric instead of batting .
Treat that cotton piece the same as you would the batting, for width and length. The fabric acts as a stabilizer. Add the top of the quilt, and you are ready!
Luxe Cuddle is a wonderful sensory experience! This is my fourth lap quilt with Luxe Cuddle.
