And the shift a lot. And pull. And are a pain to quilt.
Are they worthy? Sorry, not for me.
I bought about 5 colours. Yes, there's an awsome purple ( I like purple) and a great orange, but the rest... Let's just say I wouldn't buy them anymore. Not even the ones I liked.
I remember I once saw a quilt made by Rita at RPQ, with small squares, very colourful and with lots of purple shot cottons. This women in terrific! I had the most horrible time working with these fabrics and I'm sure my squares weren't as small as hers.
And don't get me started on the grey ones. Have you ever seen a homeless with incredibly dirty clothes? The ones that used to be black in anotherlife? That's my gray shot cotton.
Now, I'm sure that there are people that love these colors. And textures. Actually I read a lot of great things about them before purchasing. We are all different and it's perfectly fine. But for my few readers that have similar tastes... I won't do it again :) Ah, maybe for a really thin hot summer blouse, 10 years from now... :)
And what an amazing choice for the back! The stripes I said I won't use. Even the pictures are all wrong.
The fabrics reallt go very well toghether. And the quilt is really nice, I like it a lot.
But the amount of work? So not worthy :(
