"Stretchy" Quilt (no I didn't make it)
I bought this quilt second hand. It includes many VERY STRETCHY velour pieces as well as several other "unsuitable for quilting" blocks. It has no tags and I'm guessing it was made in China. (Sorry the lighting is so poor and I didn't even clear off the counter behind it before snapping the picture.)
None of the pieces seem to be interfaced! It is soft and comfortable with a cheap cotton fabric on the back and has a high loft (probably poly) batting. It's quilting looks like a very loose hand made running stitch but is probably done by machine using some kind of basting stitch.
If you, like I, have a lot of "unsuitable" for quilting fabrics, please contact me with your ideas. I'm sure stretchy fabrics have much to offer IF we can figure out how to use them in our quilts without pulling our hair out!
Maybe it's time we took stretch velour and cotton knits, etc off our "can't do" list!?! This quilt is proof enough for me!
