In the project I’ve posted about the last 2 days (here). While at Hancock Fabrics, I found this piece of absolutely gorgeous fabric……perfect for the backing!!!!! The quality/hand of the textile is superb. It is definitely “quilt shop” worthy. You will pardon my surprise, please. Generally, my purchases have been of acceptable quality (but constant vigilance is needed, as ‘flimsy’ best describes a significant percentage of their inventory) but this piece falls in to the ‘exceptional’ category. It was on the shelving labeled “Global Fabrics”. Interesting tag. This, and the other bolts, reminded me of some of the Ausie fabrics that are available these days.
So, you are saying….”Show me the fabric already!!!!!!”…..OK……………..
I am in love with this fabric!!!!! It has a somewhat ‘polished’ finish with a hint of gold metallic (which is not really there!). It will be the perfect backing for this quilt. Edit note: for more info on this type of fabric, see this link: http://museorigins.net/the-origin-of-ankara/
