I find this rather intriguing, but what do you stuff it with? They don’t say, but I can’t think cotton, it would dry unevenly. So it would have to be either wool batting, to match the wool pebbles or synthetic.

Aztec inspired baby medallion quilt: Quilting is complete! (The pictures are a bit dark because I took them at night, but you can see the quilting).
It’s the first time that I’ve done free motion quilting on an actual quilt (I’ve been practicing on other things, like pouches). And, it’s definitely the most dense quilting I’ve done so far! The quilting is definitely not perfect but I think I’m happy with the overall effect.
I think I’ve learned a lot through the process of making this baby sized version of a larger medallion quilt I’ll make later - in terms of fabric cutting shortcuts, piecing triangles and free motion quilting. I also had way more fun free motion quilting than I thought I would!
Nearly done - now on to the binding!
