I think all quilt battings have quilting recommendations on the packaging. Usually it’ll say if it’s for hand and/or machine quilting, washing settings and how far apart quilting lines can be. This particular batting suggests quilting at 4″ apart. So I tacked down every 3″ or so just to be safe. I knew it would get dragged around and used a lot.
I first spied the baby seal fabric on Amanda‘s instagram and immediately had to hunt some down. Lucky for me, Fabric Supply on Etsy had some and I scooped it up with glee! It’s a beautiful double gauze so it’s very soft. On the back I used more double gauze. Some Nani Iro from Miss Matatabi that reminded me of snow (it’s a cream color base with white abstract dots) and then a patch of a gray gauze that I found on fabric.com.
