Good Morning all! A friend and I are planning a new baby quilt for an expecting mother. We have this idea of elvish Rivendell (lord of the Rings) inspired quilt. We found a pattern we love, but are concerned about fabrics. Our dream is to use green velvets and gauzey silvers. Can anyone offer their experience with using such different weight and texture materials? Are there special treatments we should know about ahead of time?
Thanks to all you excellent quilters! It's inspiring to us newbies!
