Snowballs in Hell

What does a person do when it is 90 degrees and 99% humidity?  Sew a quilt, of course!  I assembled 54 snowball blocks today, made by my bee pals at Two's Company and myself.   I love the scrappiness of each person's choice of reds and whites.  Have the backing and binding fabrics ready to go, but I need to buy some batting.  Want to use wool batting, as I plan to use this quilt for my naps next winter...ahhhhh.   Does anyone have a brand to recommend?


  1. That is an awesome quilt Helen! I'm no expert, but I use Warm & Natural.

  2. Looking great Helen. I too am busy quilting pretty much sitting on my air conditioning unit! :)

  3. love this quilt, its just soooo pretty. will be great to use this winter.
    I have never used wool batting. sorry I can't help

  4. I use Matilds'a Own from Australia. Best wool batting I have ever used. Quilts like a dream, washes in the machine (gotta love that) & is warm without weight.
    Here is the Australian wholesaler, if you email them they could tell you where to find it at home.
    Love the snowballs.

  5. I've used Dream Wool, just because it's available at the local shop. I like it. Your quilt is fabulous!!

  6. No, any kind of nap is good.
    My personal favorite is a long nap. :)

  7. Oh yeah, the quilt is awesome.

    P.S. I don't know about wool batting. But it sounds nice and warm. A friend told me her wool quilt is heavy, and she loves it that way.
