i have been commissioned to make a quilt by a dream client. my very first!
she loves mid-century modern design, so it's been really wonderful to browse vintage fabrics. holy cow are they ever expensive! $155 a meter for authentic textiles? woah. and she didn't even blink...
different reality than my current one! but i'm so excited
my question though is about quilting with velvet. i was thinking i could back it in velvet maybe.
has anyone done this? i've read that working with it can be tricky if it starts to fray, and it doesn't really like to stay still.
thoughts? stories? tips?
