I attended Wisconsin Quilt Expo in Madison WI in early September and Chris Daly was vending her hand dyed fabrics. I purchased a bundle of bright hand dyed velvets which included hot pink. I used it for the highlights in the hair area. The velvet was easy to fuse and quite easy to sew on!! Velvet was the second road less traveled idea over using the traditional cotton in my quilt. Thanks Chris and it was nice to meet you and see all your beautiful fabrics!
Idea number three for the road less traveled was to use a 1970s themed Duct Tape as my binding. My friend Faith who is in her early 20s, and a fun inspirational young lady, is the duct tape extraordinaire and I decided to bind this quilt in duct tape after watching her do her thing!!
So that is my reveal-I have an idea for the macro challenge and it is NOT a portrait quilt!!
