In my head I call this my Miami Vice quilt because of the colour palette. Once upon a time I bought some Oakshott shot cottons but when they turned up I was never really in love with the colours. First I tried some hexies:
But I wasn't really feeling the love. So everything went into the cupboard until I saw this quilt over at Red Pepper Quilts. I like the way the colours look together now, so as far as the top goes, it is a happy outcome.
I am tempted to back the quilt with this lovely fabric but its voile. Which gives me the fear. Big time.
Will a can of 505 basting spray and a million pins do the the trick? Or is it going to slip and slide and cause a lot of bad words around the place?? Adrianne told me that she backed a quilt with voile and that it went together ok. Mmmm. Will keep you posted.
