So much for the fabric diet, *ahem.*

I was doing SO well. Resisting the sales, resisting fabric I really want to add to my stash (Constellations, Micro Mod, AMH linens, Lucky Penny, stash builders in general that I have no control over buying)... but then I saw this AMH FQ bundle of voile from Westwood Acres. I. Can't. Even.  I was hovering over the "buy" button before I could even think.



I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I'm literally gathering every AMH fabric I can (mostly half yards) (and eventually some solids) to start an improv-ish/sampler quilt. I have a Pinterest board of all my favorite blocks... and a healthy amount of them will be involved. It's going to be whimsical and beauteous (hopefully), much like this quilt from Maureen.


How am I doing so far? :) Haha. I totally raided Sew, Mama, Sew no less than 3 times during their $6 a yard sale. They had everything I wanted! And now I have the voile.

I'm thinking of doing voile just on the back... it would make for such a beautiful, soft backing. This might sound like a silly question, but can you use the voile and quilting cotton together on a quilt front? Will they sew together okay? Has anyone done that? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Yes! You just have to be more careful with the voile as its slippery. Nice collection!

  3. If our quilting ancestors could mix velvet, silk, satin, lace, cotton and whatnot, you can to! Sounds like the voile will just need extra pins to keep it in its place!
