    Satin Feathers...quilted by Kevin

    Kevin has a quilt coming up in his lineup that is entirely made of satin. So...he put on a practice piece of dark emerald green satin, and this is what he came up with. Batting is Hobbs 80/20, and thread is poly in Silk Beige color. Thanks for looking

    If that is just practice, can't wait to see the real deal. That is just gorgeous and so puffy and elegant looking. Wow!

    wow, that's great. by chance did he make any errors and have to unsew? i'm interested in knowing if holes made by the needle are permanent.

    I'll have to ask if he did, but I didn't hear a "blue streak" coming from his area today, so probably didn't have to rip anything.

    His work is great. I don't envy his job working with satin.

    Don't know if I worded that right. Meant that I thought satin would be very difficult to work with...

    Nancy...it turns out he did have to rip out some stitches. He said it didn't leave any permanent holes and that ripping leaves more holes in cotton fabric. He also used a size 18 needle on the satin.

    He will post pics of the real deal when done, he says "if he doesn't die of old age first!" lol

    thanks for the feedback. i declined to make a satin quilt for someone once as i'd heard that the holes do not disappear... and i'm definitely not good enough to avoid ripping
