Voile, so soft and snuggly.

I have not worked with voile until this project.  During guild meetings others have brought in projects featuring it and I loved the feeling.  However, just never branched out to try it.  Plus, the cost is a bit more and when there isn’t a project in mind, I have to put it off.

I had someone contact me to make the a quilt and the fabric I found was voile.  They wanted something bold and colorful with a great print.  I usually send everyone over to Hawthorne Threads because of their wonderful search system.  Makes it easy for non-sewists to find colors and themes they may be looking for.  I found this great fabric that I thought reflected the sample she had sent over.

Before I committed to anything I checked with the ladies in the Indy Modern Quilt Guild to make sure I wasn’t taking on the impossible.  For the quilting I stayed with wonky straight lines.  Quilt is backed and bound in Kona Pomegranate.  I had mentioned on facebook a couple of weeks ago that lots of pink would be coming, finally.

Loved working with voile and I ordered some more to play around with.
