    Would you ever use silver and gold together?

    Just wondering if you would ever use fabric with gold metallic and fabric with silver metallic, together in the same project.

    Don't know why not - they mix them in jewelry

    As long as it coordinates with the other fabrics...SURE! I actually like gold/silver together.

    Almost never ! I find it tough to mix the two. The gold in most metalics is so over powering to the silver. Most silver metalics are blue( winter type) , a few purple, and a couple black... so the base fabrics make it limiting. I would love to see a combo metalic with both I think it would make it easier to combine . The ultimate would have sliver, gold and a copper colored metalic ... a girl can dream !
    I actually experimented with some Moda Marbles and fabric paint .. did a spatter style paint in metalics of the three. It got me the results I was looking for ... just messy process.

    I would for a Christmas themed project. Reminds me of the song sung by Burl Ives, "Silver and Gold."

    I think it would have to depend on how it looks together. Sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. You will know when you look at it. Go with your instincts.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Nope, but I don't mix gold and silver jewelry either.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I don't think I would in a quilt. Unless of course the fabrics worked well together.
