Here's the question - for all of you experienced quilters:
DD wants me to make a quilt out of the bridesmaid dresses she has worn. All of them are satin. We will also be using crushed velvet. My vision was to tie it. But she wants it quilted. Can you quilt satin and velvet? I suppose I could do it in squares and then sew them together. I really don't know. And what thread would I use for the quilting, with the materials being black, silver, periwinkle, 2 different shades of burgundy, and an off-white. Can you even wash these fabrics? I'm thinking it would have to be dry cleaned. Tell me your thoughts please?
I am in Louisville visiting DD and SIL. I came up yesterday, took a wrong turn in Knoxville and made an already 6 hour drive into an 8 hour drive. She is soooooo pregnant. Bless her heart, she is so ready to have this baby. It is fun seeing all the baby stuff.
I am loving my new Rodeo. It was great driving here. I have not had a CD player and that was great. [You remember that the car I was hanging on to was a '97.] I also like being up higher. So I rode along and Barry [Manilow] and I sang our hearts out all the way here. [I did give the Beatles some time.]
Incidentally, remember the post about trying to make baby booties and it turning out huge, like for a 5 year old. Well, the title says " something, something,and a HUGE bootie." I have gotten sooooo many hits on that post, isn't that funny. I had never thought about what that would sound like.
Have a great weekend and I hope yaw'll get some stitching [or quilting] done. I am driving instead of stitching, but it's worth it to see my kids.
When talking to them about coming up later, I said "when I come back up here to get the baby..." It was funny, talk about a Freudian slip!! I think I may have given my plan away - Bwa-ha-ha she laughed with an evil gleam in her eye!
