  21. I use a mix of vintage sheets, table cloths, fabrics together. I try not to mix them as vintage fabrics require a bit more care and the cotton is more organic than todays quilting materials. Would love this stack. I have followed you on Pinterest for a while now and now am following you on Instagram.

  85. I haven't made many quilts, but most have included solids as my basic. BUT, the quilt I'm working on right now has shown me that solid is not always the best choice - it looks so flat in my current quilt - that I need to start including some really low volume or texture instead of just a solid all the time...

    ReplyDelete
  86. I love working with Stonehenge - they have a wonderful white that works up so beautifully in baby quilts for girls. I am currently working with lots of greys and blacks thou - go figure!
