    Thoughts on Argon and Climashield TQ

    Considering making a summer, warmer weather TQ. I was thinking of trying 2.5 ounce Climashield and Argon fabric. I have not worked with Argon, so don't know much about it. Give me your thoughts. It should be nice and light I think. And I am hoping it would be fine down into the 50's.

    Think sewing silk. Very smooth. A good bit of stretch and very thin. The finished product is great. Getting used to sewing it can be a pain. Once you get used to using Argon, it's not bad.

    I just made a 2.5 oz APEX/Argon TQ this summer. I am a rookie DIY'er and this was a very easy straightforward project. My quilt build can be seen here.

    Good luck and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Looks nice. I will be venturing down this road this winter.
