Many of you who have been reading my blog for a while now know that I have a fascination with silk. I had recently posted here about my trip to NYC and the silk dupioni that I had acquired.
Well, last week, my friend Victoria phoned me and asked if she would like me to pick me up some more silks!! Would I ever... YES!! So off she went, and after numerous text messages and phone calls, here is what she purchased for me and for her...
Thank you so much, Victoria! Now we have to arrange a time to play with these fabrics and come up with some wonderful quilting designs. If you go over to her blog, she recently went to the Folk Art Museum which had a beautiful display of some silk quilts that she posted.
Now, these aren't the only silks that I own. My parents had gone over to China a couple of years ago and brought me the silks in the photo below.
Aren't they yummy? These are very different from the dupioni silk. They are slicker to the touch and are something that you might see in a garment. But I don't think that I will be putting them in a garment. I definitely will be making a quilt, maybe a crazy quilt? What do you think?
These are the silks that I came back with from my first trip to NYC. They go well with the silks that Victoria picked up.
So here is my thought process... for the dupioni silk I was thinking of doing an up to date Amish quilt or something similar. Also, possibly mixing them in with the silks from China for a Crazy Quilt. What do you think? Does anyone have any great ideas for using these silks or how they might look nice? I would love to know. Thank you in advance!!
