Polyester is easy to work with in quilting. The color never fades and its easy to wash/dry. I love it and am not ashamed of that at all.
Here is another quilt I just made from polyester fabrics -- The green solid is a cotton sheet.
In person - the dark color is brown - not red.
Ill take another pic in the AM in real light. I stayed up way too late tonight. Im hoping for a snow day tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
