I really love this piece of hand dyed fabric but wasn't sure how to cut it up and use it. Since I didn't seem to be able to cut into it, I decided to quilt it as a whole cloth quilt. The quilting gave the fabric a nice texture and movement. The quilting is a gentle spiral with lines spaced 1/4" apart. Yes, a 1/4" - that's a lot of quilting. For me, the quilting isn't finished until the piece can stand up on it's own in the corner.
I used Superior Threads So Fine in a light lavender, it was perfect. Superior Threads is my favorite brand of thread from quilting to piecing. I never have any problems with it and their selection of weights and colors is amazing.
For the past couple of months, I have been re-working and designing the Tuscan Rose web site. Stop by for a look. I think I have most of the broken links and little issues worked out but if you see something that is broken, just let me know.
Modern Shibori One of today's hand dyed fabric, coming to the shop soon. I have many really great pieces that I will be adding. We are still working out some of the bugs on the new website, hopefully that will be fixed soon also.
I think this piece of fabric would be great for a whole cloth quilt.
