    Summer Flower Garden quilt..... inspired by ksea

    Many thanks to ksea. Her quilt....shown in the link..... was my inspiration.

    Opinions please


    The floral fabric that I used was polycotton and caused no end of trouble.

    Sorry for the 'squishy' pic.

    Yes Diane.
    It had a coating on it and was really slippery especially when I started to quilt it.

    I don't pre-wash fabrics but I think it would have been a good idea with this one.

    I assumed it was poly but perhaps it was some other synthetic.

    Could it have been polished cotton? It has a coating on it. I always prewash all my fabrics, I don't like the sizing. If they will fade or not wash up good I want to know before I put all the work and time into them.

    Beautiful quilt, great colors and job.

    Perhaps it was polished cotton.
