Ice Cream Cone Quilt

My Ice Cream Cone quilt is done!    I posted about this quilt top back in April here so that is where you can find all the details about this cute block.   I added a purple batik inner border and pink batik outer border then repeated the purple again for the binding.

I was debating about custom quilting this one but once I realized I wanted to make it a snuggly quilt and use a Cuddle backing with Dream Puff batting I knew a panto would be all it needs.  I like to use Puff batting with Cuddle/Minkie backing as that prevents the long fibres from the backing to beard up into the top fabrics.

I chose Wave on Wave for the panto and used white So Fine thread.

  4. Lovely quilt! I tried minky once on my gammill but ended up with wrinkles on the top... guess I had it stretched too tight or something? How do you do it? xx
