Little Black Dress..

Oh, I have had my eye on this fabric line for a long time and it finally came through my door.  The line is called Little Black Dress.  Isn't it fabulous?  Black, tan and grays....  The backing on this one is divine!  I could just take that fabric, quilt it up straight off the bolt and lay it across my sofa.  :)  Sheila brought this beautiful quilt to me.  We used a design allover called Batik with a tan thread.  Sheila brought her own batting which is fabulous.  It is a batting called Nature-fil by Fairfield batting.  I am not a big fan of this manufacturer, but this Nature-fil feels better than Warm and Natural and Dream cotton.  It is a blend of Rayon and cotton and is sooo soft and has a wonderful drape.  I sent an inquiry out to the company today to send me samples.  They carry it at JoAnn's and if you can get your hands on it, I would recomment you try it.  Now Fairfield makes an 80/20 blend and other battings too that I am not a big fan of, but this Nature-fil is good stuff!

The second quilt is by Nancy.  I love these French General fabrics.  We used a design allover Flowers for Haley with wool batting and neutral thread.  Nice work ladies!  Hope you like the way they turned out.  Take care, Richla
