Cotton, silk and velvet
At the Stitches and Craft Show in March I bought a turquoise triple treat from Dyed and Gone to Heaven: three hand dyed fat quarters of Silk/Rayon Velvet, Silk Dupioni and crinkle Silk Chiffon. I combined the velvet and silk dupioni with turquoise and orange hand dyed cotton sateen, also from Dyed and Gone to Heaven, and pieced a quilt top (not knowing that you should use interfacing when using velvet and silk... I will definitely do that next time!) I've started quilting the top and am enjoying the way the different fabrics look when quilted. Here's a sneak peek - to be continued!
