It is always hard to get a realistic photo of fabric with metallic in it. These are like a shot cotton with metallic thread woven in one direction and cotton in the other. I am contemplating using one of them for the circles in the center of Vintage Spin blocks.
I only have fat quarters of the pastel colors and half yards of the others. I will have to figure out how many 3" circles I can get out of a fat quarter.
Last night I ditch quilted this piece while I watched TV for 2 hours. I made 5 of these wonky pieces when I got home from NC and my solo show in June 2012. I finished 2 to have in a gallery show the next spring and the 3 remaining are going to be quilted this spring. I put facings on them instead of binding so I'll have to go back to my post about that and see how I did it.
