The AMB solids will soon be available at my LQS, but in the meantime I ordered a couple yards from Pacific Fabrics & Crafts. I've always loved yellow and have wanted to create a light yellow whole cloth quilt since seeing so many gorgeous whole cloth quilts on the Celebrate Hand Quilting Facebook group. Also, being new to commercial stencils, I decided to start small with a pillow or sham sized piece.
So, without further ado, here is my progress to date on said sample pillow/sham in AMB's light yellow - my NewFO for May:
I've been hearing the praises of Aurifil 28 wt. cotton thread for hand quilting, and thought this would be a good project to give that a go. I had one small spool of a light blue-green in that weight, and with the addition of some Thread Heaven, it is quilting beautifully.
Batting for this project is a polyester remnant I had in the stash, and it is giving this some nice loft. I think I would plan to use a Hobbs Polydown batting for a large bed-size whole cloth quilt.
May NewFO Linky Party where you can see lots of other newly started projects, and link up with one of your own new creations!
P.S. I have absolutely no affiliation with AMB Brand or Clothworks - just a love of hand quilting and a desire to support Made in the USA products!
