A simple single Irish chain. Another Connecting Threads kit (from eons ago) that has been languishing in a (very much out-of-control) stash! Simple piecing/small project……approximately 46” square…….. Stay tuned…..decisions to be made: What to stitch????
Thread: (top & bobbin) Isacord. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom, cotton/poly. Please, do come back and visit and see my choices for bringing this cutie to life!

Do you use one layer of the Hobbs batting? Or two?
This quilt is a donation quilt (to Mexico) so I use just one layer….
Thank you! You get such variation in depth in your work; I was wondering if you used two layers to achieve that. I have tried lots of battings, and I have settled on the 80/20 too, as the one where I can get my stitches to sink in nicely on both sides of the quilt. I have a lot of practice ahead to get anywhere as good as you, but knowing your batting choice will help! 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words! I have found that the finer the thread, the more it sinks into the sandwich creating texture. That’s why I’ve been very pleased when I use the 70 wt Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly thread. It’s fine weight and matte finish gives a beautiful texture finish. Sending hugs your way……………………..
Thanks for that additional tip! Hugs back to you!
