So, what’s your favorite solid? I’m talking beyond Kona here. I’ve noticed all the new Freespirit solids and wondering if the price is justifiable?
I often get inquiries when I post a project with Robert Kaufman’s Carolina Chambray. It’s my favorite solid. We created quite a few quilts in the book with it.
Though I do love the softness of the cross weaves and the texture of the shot cottons, I find chambray a good weight and easy to work with when quilting.
When you place it in different directions you notice the weave. This adds another dimension to the design of a quilt.
The natural is probably the one I get asked about the most, likely because I use it the most. I’ve made several boy print hst quilts out of it and endless amounts of pillows.
All the colors are vivid and rich, but I love the orange.
I added a little to my Destash of
the chambrays if you’re in the mood for something new. You guys are quick, I even relisted. I added some cross-weave at a good deal.
But I’d like your thoughts.
