I'd been looking for a project that showed off this incredibly beautiful iridescent bundle from Westwood Acres. I'd been advised you need to starch voiles, use a 70 needle, a lot of pins and to be ready for a lot of fraying. In fact, I didn't starch, found that it was easier to sew without pins and used the same needle I'd just quilted a quilt with (probably a 90) and didn't notice any more fraying than with quilting cottons. They're slippery so you have to press them down hard when you cut because they can slide about under the ruler. Unpicking is a nightmare because they are so soft and lightweight that it's easy for the seam ripper to rip them rather than the thread. Photographing the quilt top was hard because it slid off everything I hung it over. But sewing with it was not especially tricky - no more so than with Liberty lawns or Oakshott shot cottons which are also lightweight and slightly more slippery than quilting cottons.
