Notice how lumpy and bumpy it hangs.
I LOVE the texture they add to the quilt.
But these fabrics are not your regular quilting cotton, let me tell ya. While I read that they could be challenging, I needed to experience it to really understand. Yes, they fray! Yes, they stretch!
Even though I prewashed the fabric to see how it would behave, I am concerned about how it will quilt;
and even more concerned how it will eventually come out in the wash.
The second row shows closeups of the five tans I chose.
From the left, the first two are from Jen Kingwell's Behind the Scenes collection. The next two fabrics are left over from my Steampunk and Fox quilts respectively. The last one on the right? I found in my fabric box and have no idea where it came from.
I am hoping this top survives machine quilting and the laundry.
Then it will have a nicer story to share.
