I’m just a teeeny tiny bit obsessed with this new line of fabric from Robert Kaufman. Raw and Refined is a new line of neutrals that are a blend of textures and substrates. From cotton to rayon to linen and silk! Some have small stripes woven in. Some are very light weight and drapey. Others are heavier weight and really slubby! My favorite is probably the 100% cotton that has a crepe texture. It’s so dreamy!!!
In my dreams I’d stash yards and yards of all them to have on hand but in reality I started small with a few 1/4 yard cuts to play with. I whipped up this disappearing 9 patch of sorts with another textured woven for a pop of color. I LOVE how it turned out! I’m really torn on how to quilt it though. I want to incorporate machine quilting and hand quilting to add to the texture of the quilt… but that’s all I’ve got! Should I keep with the grid? Create movement with concentric circles? I’m stumped!
How would you quilt this quilt? I’d love your input and opinions!
PS: Raw and Refined is our Bundle of the Week… get an awesome fat quarter stack for only $28 until Tuesday! I swear you’ll love it as much as I do!
