Ideas most welcome on this project please.....
Tomorrow I am getting ready for my quilt weekend.
My husband has a request for a quilt, he has had the same request for a few years.
You see, he likes hardly any blankets and I like to be very snug and warm. We manage best with quilts that I have made rather than eiderdowns/doona/blankets but even with quite a light weight batting he is hot...while I am on the chilly side.
Now, of course, we could go out and find a partner who likes the same set up but I have just got him about trained right (cough, cough, choke. choke!!) so I am considering that isn't the best option.
...well, we have the toilet seat dilemma sorted......lol
The second best is making some kind of differently weighted quilt.
I had thought about just joining a really light batting to a heavier one, but the unevenness and difficulty of making it in any way unifom and neat looking has put me off. But I think i have come up with an idea to try. He quite likes one woollen blanket in weight. I hate woollen blankets, but I am thinking I could make a string quilt where I cut up the foundation blocks for his side out of a woollen blanket and for my side out of the weight of batting i like. This should eliminate and obvious batting difference half way down the middle of the bed and all I will have to do is back it at the finish.
Can you see any obvious problem with this, or have you ever tried to make a quilt to solve a similar problem?
All input appreciated before I start cutting waddings and strings tomorrow,
