I was recently asked to make a unisex quilt for a not-yet-born baby. I was excited by the challenge to go gender neutral yet stay within my vibrant style. I don’t think the person who commissioned the quilt was concerned with the style as much as they were with gender neutrality, but it was important...

It’s beautiful! Stitcher’s Garden in Franklin, TN has quite a few AMH voiles from Little Folks, etc., but not sure if they will sell online – you might have to go in person. It’s not a store for the claustrophobic, or thin-skinned.
Whatever you do, NEVER EVER ask them if they ever have sales (they DO NOT, EVER). I’ve heard they will run you out of the store if you ask.
Hi Meredith, I actually found two listings on etsy for you– I will try to post the links here for you:
Hopefully theres enough foryou there to get a few bindings done!

This is SOOO lovely!! I am certain the parents (and the babe, eventually) will cherish it!
(I found your blog googling ‘hand quilting voile w perle cotton’ ~ I just finished a quilt top (with quite a few AMH fabrics :-) that will be backed w some AMH voile. I assume it’d be an absolute dream to quilt, but then I got worried that the tighter weave may not be so nice to hand-quilt after all – but it sounds like it will work fabulously…
Funny thing is – I recently finished a quilt that took me about 150 hours to make, so I wanted a quick project. This one fit the bill, and the blocks went together quickly, and were so much fun to make. I wanted to use wool batting, but that seemed almost wasteful, since i was going to machine quilt it (save the good stuff for hand-quilting, ya know? ;-) I talked about it with my husband, and he’s like, “So, basically, you’re going to take all that work (it really wasn’t all that much…) and go with something that you think isn’t as nice for this quilt, because of $15 -$20??” Gosh, put like that, the wool batting was a no-brainer :-) THEN – I started thinking, maybe I should hand-quilt it….)
I’m looking forward to poking around your blog a bit more as I get the chance ~ what I’ve seen so far is lovely!
I’m so glad you stumbled across my blog! I LOVE quilting voile by hand. Really, hand quilting is my go to method because I’m way better at that than machine quilting. And I think those lusciously soft fabrics like voile and lawn just beg for a little hand quilting. I’m a sucker for a quick, well done project, but honestly its the one’s that take the longest and the most love that I treasure the most. We only get so much time here, so I like to spend it doing what I love rather than what I like. Thanks for stopping by and don’t be a stranger! :D
