I’m working on a new online class, trying to meet a very tight deadline, and am in a bit of a quandary choosing fabric. If I’m going to meet this deadline–and nothing says I have to, though it would be nice if I could–I am limited to fabrics I have on hand. I have three possibilities (the right texture and count), and I’d like you to help me choose.
As many of you know, I love black fabric, but it can be difficult to see to count threads. Black is one option.
Another option is a yellow plainweave fabric that is perfect in every way, except the color is a little pale for my particular tastes.
The third option is aida. I’m using the Tropical Green–a lovely lime–for a test piece, and I have a couple of other colors that would please me.
What are your feelings and preferences with regards to fabrics? If you like the look of a piece, do you care what it is stitched on?
