I think I have indeed just finished making the perfect shareable snuggle quilt in both size and feel. With a knit front and a cuddle back, it’s quite literally snuggle-able no matter how you drape it.
The journey of this quilt began by me making a Quilted Knit Striped Pillow. As the idea in my head, it wasn’t my general aesthetic, so I didn’t know that I would be as obsessed with it as I was. I even created a YouTube video showing how to do the preparation and piecing of the knit component of the pillow and quilt.
So this is everything that I used for the quilt:
- Forty-eight 9″ squares of Knits Striped from Art Gallery Fabrics
- Solid Cuddle in Saltwater from Shannon Fabrics
- Ermine 50 wt Aurifil from my Mister Domestic’s Tool Box, which has basically become my go-to neutral because it adds just the right amount of pow
- Hobbs 100% wool batting
Okay, so I’m gonna be honest here. Knit fabric front + wool batting + cuddle backing is quite literally a pain in the ass to sew. But I know Felicia is tough and I’ve been working on my fitness so I knew I could handle it. And I’m not saying this to discourage you from this combination. However, just know that your quilting will enter into a category of what I’m calling “Organic Hot Mess Awesomeness”. I actually love the quilting and wouldn’t change a single thing about it, but boy does it have a mind of it’s own if you look too closely.
And here are some other supplies that’ll help conquer this beast if you so choose.
