Silk Quilts


When my BFF Lisa mentioned making a quilt from silk I thought this would be a good time to share some of my silk quilts with you.

This Trip Around The World quilt was made with various types of silk. Silk takes colors so beautifully, unlike any other fabric. This is a perfect quilt to hang in a dimly lit area as it just glows.


This fused quilt was built in layers with various different silks. the patterned silk is hand painted.

It is not poor photography, it really is an askew shape.


Crystal Clear is silk that I painted with watered down paints. The edges were appliqued down with visible stitches. That is a lot more hand sewing than I usually use in a quilt.
