Q&A with Polarjo

sistertammie asked:
I love what you did with the center, that is always the one thing I do not like about this block, is the center. But you did it. love it.
Polarjo answered:
Thanks. I was happy that the spiral came out so smooth and evenly. I did the same spiral in the center of the other dresden plate block and it is not nearly as pretty. Luckily the fabric on that one is so busy it camouflages the stitching. :-)
Cat Sultan asked:
I like this one especially! The rounded "petals" adds a nice touch. What kind of batting did you use in your quilt? It seems a bit loftier than cotton.
Polarjo answered:
Thanks. It's "Warm and Natural" brand batting which I think is 80% cotton/20% polyester. It's actually fairly thin. I think it looks puffy because of the way the sun was hitting it when I took the pictures. Created more depth and shadow than is really there.
