I was talking to Daughter #3 recently about fabrics with great texture. She was thinking about a linen quilt. Linen seems to have a reputation for fraying. I’d like to try it on a small project before committing to a bed quilt with it. I had some extra backing at the end of a quilt I finished and decided to see what would happen if I quilted a cheap drop cloth from Zmenards.
These photos show the before and after washing shots.
These cotton drop cloths are pretty stiff when New, but washing softens them and I do love the texture of this.
I used red thread because that is what was on the machine. Here are the photos of the back.
I’m still intrigued by this. I may pick up another drop cloth and think about a who,e cloth quilt.
Have a great day!
