The backing will be a great bark cloth I found on eBay about 10 years ago, but I have to check with the long-armers first to be sure that much heft of fabric will work. The previous quilt (the brown/neutral one in my last post) was a challenge for them because the quilt was a mix of batiks and straight cottons, and the thread I wanted used was slippery (think almost rayon) and variegated. Long-arms can sometimes be fussy about both those things. Will they ban me from bringing quilts in the future if I bring them bark cloth backing with a heavy linen front? Maybe. But probably not.
The holiday season marches on and so do I. Thanks for stopping by!
