this one is cuddly

I find that the more quilting I do on a quilt, the stiffer it is.  This quilt got minimal quilting and is so cuddly.  I think some times in our efforts to make the quilt fancy, we take away from the purpose of the quilt, which is to bring comfort.  There has to be a balance between just the right amount of stitching to keep the quilt together and not too much quilting to make the quilt stiff.  While I admire some quilters who do really fancy work, I wouldn't want to pull one on me to cuddle under.

I certainly agree with you on this one. I hate all that intense quilting that makes a quilt so stiff you can use it as a quilt. I think that's fine for competition quilting but not for 99% of the quilts that will acutally get used!

I love when quilts are soft and cuddly. I do my quilting far enough apart that it remains soft and wonderful. Love your quilts. BIG GOAL you set for yourself!!
