I saw a log cabin made from all plaids this winter and fell in love with it. It looked like they were all homespun fabrics and vewry scrappy looking. So...I started collecting them toward the end of the season when everyone was marking them on clearance. I think I have more than enough to make a huge quilt.
I was looking forward to starting on this during the late summer, but this weekend, I was discussing it with some friends while at a retreat and they tell me it's awful to work with and will not be suitable for a quilt because it ravels so much. They recommended that I not even try it.
Anyone have words of wisdom for me? I'm not sure what to do now; whether to try it or do something different. Has anyone else used homespun with a log cabin or pieced quilt with good luck? If I do take the time to make this, is it going to hold up when laundered????
