crawling along on the quilted petticoat

I don't know why I thought I could just blaze away and get my quilted petticoat panel finished today. I am so close!!! No matter what I do though it's a wretchedly slow business, working on the pestilential thing. *razenfrazen*

I finished the "padded" bit and cut off the batting (so that I don't have bulk at the waistline.) I think 2 more rows of diamonds should do it, at least I hope so. My brain is to starting to feel like mush so I'm going to set it aside for a while though.

I don't know how I'm ever going to make it through a whole other panel! *whimpers*

Sometimes I get fixated on how things are done. Not that I would ever make one of these but...yeah...I'm fixated on this petticoat. I'd like to know how you assembled it. Must have read the quilt diary five times, but think I missed something. Ok, can I ask????

How many layers of fabric did you use and in what order did you lay them?

What kind of padding are you using?

Did you use a basting spray? If so on all layer or one?

How many yards of fabric for the petticoat?

I think you mentioned the petticoat is in two pieces? right?

How far from the bottom did you begin?

Are you going to hem the petticoat or bind it?

Will the top of the petticoat be gathered or pleated.

Finally, what or how did you trace the design?

If this is too lengthly you don't have to answer. I'd understand :)
