So I finally dug out some of those lovely special fabrics, the ones that I have been saving for something special
*I had a revelation that I don't want to be someone who dies with a roomfull of craft stuff for my daughter to have to get rid of...plus the cool fabric that I love today, after a few years, well I don't love it so much*
so I got out the nicest ones...inspired by a quilt I saw on pinterest, I made this top. It is midnight here and I can't find my camera, so this is a cellphone pic and the colours are a lot more vibrant in real life..
the question is, I have just a regular short arm sewing machine, I am using a 4oz polyester batting, as I want softness, lightness and drapeabilty (I usually use recycled 100% woollen blankets as wadding, lovely, but stiffer). I always tend I quilt in straight lines as it is easier. I think I might do the same...don't really want to risk free motion on this top. But what 'pattern' should I use, plus as you can probably see, the top is not completely flat- I still haven't managed to cut exactly on the grain and sew without stretching!
