Not too long ago I had a call from a student at Bath University
looking for help quilting fabric for one of the designs for her final collection.
The materials were not your usual patchwork cottons .. no indeed ... a milky white slippery waterproof fabric that I thought was PVC but turned out to be super expensive latex, layered over an airtex stretch fabric, plus a layer of fluffy batting and backed with white calico.
The quilting was simple enough - just straight lines but finding a process for quilting a slippery latex was interesting BUT thankfully not impossible.
3.5m of puffy quilted snowy white fabric was the result.
But look what Rebecca made with it!
Rebecca qualified with a first class honours and is currently overseas
being interviewed for a MAJOR fashion house.
I am SOOOOO delighted for her and feel honoured to have a played a
very small part in her life.
Look at the rest of her catwalk fashion show.
I just love all her creations.
Aren't they cool!
