Default Quilting police come and get me.............

I was a bad, bad, bad girl......not only did I use polyster thread to quilt this quilt.....I used RAYON!!!! I couldn't find a yellow varigated to use on the binding. So I went ahead and used rayon.

This is Cheaper by the Half Dozen by Atkinson Designs. It uses 6 fat quarters, 1 5/8 for the backing, 7/8 of a yard of outer border and binding (normally) and 3/8 of a yard for the inner border. I used the piping binding for this quilt. That way I could machine sew the binding on and not have to take the time to hand sew it.

This is for a new great niece due the end of June.

Will someone please post my bail for me?????

Rayon is so pretty! Your quilt is adorable! Is rayon strong enough to use as quilting thread? I've wanted to use it myself, but haven't because I thought it wasn't strong enough. I use (cheap! shhhh!) poly thread too!

Rayon is known to not hold it's color using bleach (which mother's tend to do with babies) and it is a weak thread that wears poorly. That's why if people use it in quilts it's usually in wallhangings that aren't used and washed. Good luck!

Despite that myth many people use polyester thread in quilts, although rayon is used, don't know how well it will hold up to multiple washings due to how fragile it is, but it is a very nice quilt. Baby will love it!!!
