I am going to make a fall colored quilt that will be pieced using 12" strips that will be long enough to go from one side of the bed to the other. The strips will be different colors and will also have felted wool appliques of pumpkins, acorns and leaves on them in appropriate colors. Between each strip will be a row of fall colored triangle with a matching border. In order to get the colors I wanted for the strips, I had to buy woven cotton and homespun. Has anyone here ever mixed these fabric, and if so, were you happy with the results? This quilt is going to be very time consuming and expensive, and I really don't want to ruin it. I will appreciate all your opinions.
