Red and White Southern Sky


A Red and White Kona cotton "Southern Sky" is done.  



Trying new techniques, I used two layers of batting and densely quilted the white areas to raise the red quilting.  


I washed and blocked the finished quilt and it has softened a little, but with the quilting and double batting, not as cuddly as I like -- my quilts are used a lot, so maybe after a few more washings, it will help.
