I decided to work on a simple vintage kit I have. It was made in 1978.
The fabric is 50% cotton, 50% polyester and 100% pain!!
If you have never tried to applique with a poly blend I recommend that you don’t try it!! It is no fun. The fabric does not hold a fold, the stitches do not seat into the fabric, pressing does not work well, all in all it is not an enjoyable experience.
All the pieces are pre-cut and it should be pretty much a no brainer to put it together……not!
I don’t know if I will finish this. Quilting should be fun!!
I’m sure it would turn out fine, but is it worth the pain?
I think I need to save it for punishment and do something more fun for the holidays
