Wiggling - A Modern One-Block Quilt: Bonus Give-Away

I did it! In my "spare time" this week, I managed to cut out, piece, quilt and bind.....yes you read that right, I BOUND a quilt! It's nothing shy of a miracle.
Kathleen and I have been working through Modern One-Block Quilts, over the last year, re-making all of the quilts in the baby versions. It's been so much fun to see how different the quilts look from the original versions. So today I'm sharing another adorable quilt from Modern One-Block Quilts; Wiggling. We originally made this quilt using more earthy tones and blue sashing, I do love the original version, but have been dying to make it again using white! I love white!


When I came across this adorable At The Zoo, fat quarter bundle over at Fat Quarter Shop, I knew immediately that I had to use that fabric for my quilt. I love the variety of colors in this bundle, and the scale of the prints is just perfect for this quilt! (keep reading, Fat Quarter Shop is giving one of these beauties away)







After I got the quilt all pieced, I knew it had to be custom machine quilted, so I machine quilted some figure eights in the sashing and then a bud pattern in half of the blocks and a geometric spiral in the remaining blocks. I used Quilters Dream Wool as the batting, it's so yummy and soft!
Aren't those colors so gorgeous! Love it!
So, do you want to make your own version of Wiggling? 
Here's your chance to win fabric! 
Simply leave a comment below telling me your very favorite type of batting and why. On Monday, 11/10/14 I will randomly select one person to win their very own At The Zoo Fat Quarter Bundle, courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop!

Speaking of Fat Quarter Shop, make sure to stop by their YouTube channel, Kimberly is always coming up with something great!
Oh, and if you haven't seen enough pictures today, here's the original version of Wiggling! :)

Signed copies of Modern One-Block Quilts are available for purchase here.


GIVEAWAY CLOSED! 
Winner is Shannon Wallace!

  1. I usually use Warm & Natural, but for a recent quilt I got an 80/20 cotton/wool blend. I've only sandwiched it, not quilted yet, but it's looking like it's going to be really nice.

  2. I love that quilt! What a great pattern to show off fun prints! When I quilt myself I used warm and white because it seems to cling really well to the fabric and drapes well. However, I do love my quilts made with Quilters Dream!

  3. Your quilt is so cute and I love the cat/tiger print it's my favorite! I'm using Luna Simple Cotton Vlies for bigger quilts (found it at a favorite online shop of mine) and some Freudenberg Vlies (but I don't know the number yet) for smaller quilts (and I use it because my LQS has it). I'm from Germany so it can be that we have other battings than you in the USA.

  4. What a beautiful quilt! I love those colors! My fav batting is warm and white- it's so easy to work with!

  5. Hobbs Heirloom Cotton (80/20) works best for me. It has a little more loft and drapes nicer than Warm & Natural.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like the warm and natural cotton! Haven't tried any others yet though so I'm checking to see what all your readers like. Your quilt is just lovely. Great job!

  7. I like Warm and White. I make a lot of quilts with light or white backgrounds and I try to maximize my cotton content. I can buy it off the shelf locally and that is a bonus. I won a package of bamboo batting that will probably get sampled in my next baby size quilt. Thanks for the chance to win a great fabric bundle. Wiggling is an adorable pattern.

  8. My favorite would have to be Warm & Natural Cotton batting. I love the way it can give any quilt that pre- "Vintage" look & feel.

  10. I am too new to quilting to have a favorite batting, although I am very interested in trying wool. Right now I am quilting a twin sized quilt for my granddaughter with Quilter's Dream blend, and I very much like the weight and ease of quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have used both Warm & Natural and Quilter's Dream. Both work well for me. I love the remade quilt using white sashing. It is delightful.

  12. I love warm and natural... Perfect shrinkage for perfect crinklage

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have been using a bamboo blend which I can get locally and I like.
    Gorgeous quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Gorgeous quilt, reminds me of Christmas colours! My favourite batting was a bamboo one, I've only used it once in a quilt for my son but it is lovely and soft and with a low loft, sadly it's too expensive for me to use every time!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am a pretty new quilter, and so far have used Warm and Natural, which works just fine for me! Thanks for the giveaway! Love this pattern :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful bundle! For batting I usually use warm and natural.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice job with the new version of your quilt! Glad you were able to find some time. I usually use Warm and Natural because I like cotton and can get it at a good price from Joanns. I have just heard about Tuscany's new cotton/wool blend, which would seem like the best of both worlds. I am anxious to get some and see how I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. My favorite batting is Hobbs 80/20. I have sworn off 100% cotton. After I used it in a baby quilt, DH asked if I had forgotten to include batting. Duh! Even I couldn't forget batting.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I do not really have a favorite; but, I do try to get 100% cotton batting. I think I get Warm and Natural more often than not.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hobbs a Heirloom 80/20 is my favorite but I usually use Warm & Natural bacause I can buy it nearby with a coupon.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I haven't gotten experimental with my batting yet. I use warm and natural unless I really want the quilting to pop, then I try the higher loft blends.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Your quilt is gorgeous! Love the white background. I've used Warm & Natural for years and love it. It's great to read the other comments as well.

    Thank you and FQS for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like Warm and White, but I just got a few bags of Quilter's Dream that I can't wait to try!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I use Warm and White bad love it!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  40. I use warm and natural cotton because I can get it on sale and I like the weight of it

    ReplyDelete
  41. I normally use warm and white because it's cotton and the white is good behind light fabrics. I have used Cream Rose, also. It's nice because it's lighter and drapes nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hobbs 80/20 doubled, based solely on the fact that the one quilt I did that to is my favorite, warmest quilt to take a nap under. And PS-I love love this quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have been using Hobbs 80/20 for several years now, I just like how it drapes.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Warm & Natural batting is my favorite batting, but I also use an 80/20 for some charity quilts when I want a very drapey cuddly quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hobbs 80/20 is my go to batting. I like the "beefiness" of it but also a smooth drape. Machine quilts nice.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Warm and Natural, is my favorite. I don't like how polyester batting feels when I touch it. I guess I'm a cotton loving girl. Your quilt is beautiful. You finished it so quickly, I wish I could accomplish that. ;-> Toni Anne

    ReplyDelete
  50. Natalia, that is quite impressive! If only I had half of your amibition. ;) I truly prefer Warm & Natural because it's versatile, and VERY good quality! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Fairly new quilter here, so usually its warm & natural or soft n craft (an 80/20 blend) I've only done home dec projects and several couch throws and baby blankets.. so sometimes it's whats in the drawer...

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have used silk batting that comes off a big roll... I love the feel, and that it breathes and is easy to quilt. However, I have ordered some wool batting from Massdrop, which I think will be great for winter quilts. I am looking forward to try that!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love the colors of your quilt, aqua and red is always a winner! I live in the Middle East and unfortunately
    the only batting I have found in local shops is Bosal,80/20. Which is fine to work with but I would love the opportunity to try other lofts and fibers, especially bamboo. On my next trip overeseas I will have to stock up!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I usually use Warm & Natural but have some Quilter's Dream that I haven't had a chance to use yet.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I hate basting and find I can get better results with 100% cotton but prefer a "loftier" batting like wool to show off the quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like Hobbs 80/20 because it is easy to work with and not heavy . I did recently buy some Quilter's Dream but haven't had a chance to use it yet.

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I always use Hobbs heirloom 80/20 but am considering trying Quilters' Dream when this roll runs out.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am a new quilter and have only used warm and natural! I do like it but have nothing to compare it to!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like Hobbs heirloom 80/20. It quilts easily, has a nice drape and is breathable. I like Warm & Natural too, but sometimes it seems a little stiff.

    ReplyDelete
  60. For quilts that will go on a bed, Quilters Dream wool is my new favorite. I select more open quilting stitching. Love the light weight and the cuddly warmth of it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Bound! look at you!
    My favorite is the Quilters Dream Request and Select, 100% cotton, but I like their poly, too.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I use warm and natural also. I have only made a few quilts so far but I love the way they look after washing with this batting.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I prefer an 80/20 blend so alot of my baby quilts hold up to machine washing (and loving)

    ReplyDelete
  64. LOVE the quilt! The pattern and fabrics and, of course, the custom quilting! Bravo! I have only ever used Warm & Natural (and have been very happy with it), so I have no comparison to make with other battings. Thank you for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  65. up until my last project, I had only used warm and natural batting. I tried the Hobbs all cotton. I think I definitely prefer the warm and natural though it seems like it had a better weight both before and after quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  66. This quilt is so darling!
    I have 2 different types of batting which are my favs...bamboo-love its softness to cuddle and wool for my applique beauties. Wool seems to really give an extra specialness to the time spent doing applique.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I use Warm & White (or Warm & Natural) the most often because it never shifts when I quilt it. It is also a nice weight and stays soft when quilted. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  68. Warm and natural, because it drapes nicely. Thanks for the chance. Love the quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I use warm and natural because its usually available for a great price. I have a remnant of batting left from years ago that I loved, but I've not been able to find it again. Thanks for this chance!

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favourite is Warm N Natural - easy to find here in Edmonton, and I know what to expect from it at this point after having worked with it so much! Thanks for the opportunity :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. My favorite is Warm N Natural. (dawnm1993 at gmail dot com)

    ReplyDelete
  74. right now i am using wool…i want people to sleep under my quilts…i like the texture it creates when it is quilted…i got my LQS to order me a roll and she gave me 25% off…be aware you need some place to store it as when you open the wrapping it expands to a gnormerous size

    ReplyDelete
  75. I prefer Quilters Dream Blend, it has 70% cotton and 30 % polyester, lays nice and flat and has very little shrinkage when washed. Mary mburnette912@bellsouth.net

  76. I love warm and natural. so soft and so easy to sew with.

  77. I absolutely love the quilt, and I love love love working with bamboo batting. Soft, supple, warm enough for my south Texas weather, gives that great crinkly look.....all around great batting to use! Lightweight so I can easily maneuver my quilts through my little machine, too.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like Hobbs 80/20 because it has a nice hand to it. I like the way it washes up in my quilts.

  79. I use Warm and Natural, but I haven't tried any other commercial battings. I did use fleece on one lap quilt and that worked out nicely. I'd like to try some wool.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I like the low loft batting that makes my quilts look antique.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I use warm and natural...but I haven't tried many others so I don't know if I like it better than other kinds. Nice quilt. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  82. I like Warm & Natural for wall quilts but have been experimenting with wool batting - I might try the double layer approach that some are talking about.
    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Warm & Natural. Just like the look and feel when quilted. But, I think it is time to try some other batting.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have been using Warm and White, just because it's what I can get on sale locally! Love your quilt and that book!

  85. Love your quilt:) I have been using Warm and Natural and warm and white!! I get it with my %40 off coupon at Hobby Lobby:)

  86. I'm allergic to wool, so I really love Warm and Natural, or White and Wonderful because they are cotton.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love Warm and Natural and use that for just about everything. I've never tried a wool batting but would love to.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Batting is so hard! I've been experimenting with it a lot lately. I think I like Cotton/Poly 80/20 blends the best, but that may be because I feel like it's the best quality for my money.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Warm and White cotton. White because natural might show through. Cotton breaths and poly is to hot.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I like the Warm and Natural Cotton Batting. I like the look and feel of my quilts after they have been quilted using it.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I have been using Warm and Natural or Warm and White Cotton Batting. I love that it's a natural cotton and I like how is shrinks after I wash my quilts to give them that antique crinkly look. I would like to try some other battings like wool in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I like Warm and Natural or 100% cotton at the very least.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I use Warm and Natural because it doesn't shift, it's warm enough, and not too heavy. Washes well, too!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I once used the wool and is was so soft and drapy, I quite liked it, but happy to be personally allergic to it. For most of my quilts, I use the 80/20 however. I even once used the Quilters Dream Green Quilt Batting, the batting made from recycled bottles. It was unbelievably soft and cozy - I just wasn't sure how it would last long term. Try it! Out of habit - I reach for the 80/20.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I really like 100% cotton - love the shrinkage on my quilts to get the vintage look. mumbird3atgmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  104. My favorite batting is Warm & Natural because it's just so soft and evenly layered. plus warm!
    Good for you for completing a quilt in a week...it's a great feeling and so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Great quilt! I don't have a favorite batting, I usually use poly/cotton but I am not sure which specifically because I am pretty new to quilting and I am still experimenting with batting and everything else!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I usually use a 100% poly batting because it's economical, easy to manipulate and sew, and makes a nice washable finished product. But I really love the good old feel of 100% cotton, Warm & Natural is yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I usually always use quilters dream. Works best for me and my quilts:-) great blog-you have beautiful quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I use warm and natural for my family and special quilts OR Bamboo batting, but for charity quilts I use a polyester because I can`t afford the expensive stuff.

    ReplyDelete
