Let me tell you about the Golden Wedding quilt. As I drew and planned these patterns I imagined a beautiful white wholecloth quilt stitched in gold. I bought White cotton sateen and went looking for a gold color for the back. That was hard to find. I finally settled on a gold shantung. When I got home and spread the shantung on the rollers of my machine, it reminded me of my mother’s old drapes from the 70’s! Horrors! I couldn’t put THAT on the back of my beautiful quilt. I noticed that the fabric was satin-y on the wrong side and determined to use that side. To make the gold thread more prominent on the white fabric, I ran 2 threads through the needle at the same time – a gold metallic and a gold colored cotton/poly. (I often do that when I use metallics for more pronounced color.) When I finished quilting it the white side was lovely, but the shiny gold side was Spectacular! It became the “Right” side of the quilt! My friend Mildred quilted up a little pillow to match with the “corner”of Wedding Bell Swag.
