..... which I want to make for a baby - sex not yet known! It will be just a simple 5" block design but I've been asked for "bright colours" so mixing those with Dashwood nursery prints. Not having made one before I was wondering if polyester batting (which I wouldn't normally use) makes it a softer and cosier quilt. Can you think of reasons why I shouldn't? Does is it make quilting more difficult - although I'll only be doing straight lines up and down and across. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
