An ultimate cozy winter blanket. I try and steal this every chance I get because it's so awesome! I used the Purl Bee's Lap Duvet Tutorial to make this snuggly one!
I used a crib size 100% wool batting by Pellon (Legacy Wool Batting). I seriously need to get more of this wool batting, it's so warm and the drape of the duvet is just amazingly soft.
I think all quilt battings have quilting recommendations on the packaging. Usually it'll say if it's for hand and/or machine quilting, washing settings and how far apart quilting lines can be. This particular batting suggests quilting at 4" apart. So I tacked down every 3" or so just to be safe. I knew it would get dragged around and used a lot.
I first spied the baby seal fabric on Amanda's instagram and immediately had to hunt some down. Lucky for me, Fabric Supply on Etsy had some and I scooped it up with glee! It's a beautiful double gauze so it's very soft. On the back I used more double gauze. Some Nani Iro from Miss Matatabi that reminded me of snow (it's a cream color base with white abstract dots) and then a patch of a gray gauze that I found on fabric.com.
Snuggle time! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it so much!
