I never imagined when I picked this colour how difficult it was going to be to reproduce it in fabric. My approach, after having seen how hard Heather found it to dye fabrics to the right colour, was to buy a number of commercial fabrics in a tight value range. Looking back at my previous two responses I realised that thin lines were a factor in both, so I decided to continue this theme. Hope you all like it.
I tried a new method of edging this quiltlet, a double layer of organza pulled round to the back. I think this has distinct possibilities, but this first attempt was not really neat enough for my liking. What is ice is that it secures the raw edge, and yet still allows the pattern to be seen right to the edge of the piece.
