Customer Project: Vicky’s Geometric Quilt

Hand-dyed in small batches, the threads of Kaffe Fassett’s Shot Cottons are woven together in such a way that the color you see changes depending on the angle you catch the fabric.   But if you’ve ever worked with the shot cottons, you know just how much stretch they have, especially on the bias.  Bias stretch is great for garment-making but just a touch challenging when it comes to quilt piecing.  When Vicky chose the shot cottons for this geometric quilt–in which every piece is cut on the bias, and therefore more likely to shapeshift–we quickly suggested a technique similar to paper piecing, using muslin as a stabilizer instead of paper.  Hello, beautiful results:

You can learn more about foundation piecing from one of our favorite ladies, Elizabeth Hartmann, in a guest post on Sew Mama Sew.  Or, you can just drool over the finished project, like we did.
