This Week's Work

These two quilts were done this week. The blue and teal quilt had some rectangles that were made from silk. I have worked with silk before and it can be hard to piece and keep from fraying. This quilter put small strips of fusible interfacing in the seam allowance of each silk piece. A lot of work, but it should help. I quilted straight lines down the silk pieces and then put a fern design through the center. I think it turned out beautifully. The other quilt was large, but since it was mostly an overall design it was only a half day's work. I really like the design that went in the narrow borders.
