Lisa and I are challenging each other to create whole cloth quilts (my original post)before Quilt Market.
We’re both using Robert Kaufman’s Radiance, a cotton/silk blend. Anyone joining in on the fun can use their favorite fabric. If you need, or perhaps just want some Radiance for the challenge Olde City Quilts has a great selection.
I’ve been collecting Radiance for a while with no particular plan.
I do seem to like warm bright colors. Surprised? I do have a 3rd yard of read not on screen. With all these colors how does one choose? It’s like choosing my favorite chocolate. Mmmm, no.
I’m thinking I’m going with either the purple or the copper. I’m leaning toward the copper as it’s an autumn color and I kinda have this thing for autumn it being my favorite season and all.
As for threads I’m not quite sure yet – I suspect there will be a quilt-full of silk that I’ll order once I get home from Minnesota next week. I know I’ll need more thread. Yes! Yes! that’s it I need more silk thread. Over the next week or so I’m going to think about batting. I have a couple of ideas including Silk, wool and a new Hobbs Cotton/Wool blend that quilts up beautifully.
