Quiltmakers tend to love their cotton fabrics, and as a result, a majority of handmade quilts are made of cottons. Lately there seems to be a renewed interest in wools. That got me thinking about my favorite non-cotton quilts, and here are four. There's velvet, silk, wool, and polyester - four non-cottons.
All four quilts are visually sophisticated, and the characteristics of the fabric is what makes each quilt so successful. It's interesting to consider them as a group. It hadn't occurred to me before now. What's your favorite non-cotton material for making quilts?
