Silk Project

Silk project after adding embellishments (stamping and paint) and quilting. I used variegated blue quilting thread and silk batting. Great fun to work with.

More Dyeing Silk with Silk

My second attempt at dyeing silk with chunks of old silk ties.
I like the more vivid colors this time - because I followed the directions more closely. I'm anxious to embellish and quilt.


My attempt at using some Heather Thomas techniques taught to me second-hand, by a friend who took her class in Des Moines.

Fun, but I still prefer "traditional" methods for now.This one has given me an opportunity to practice free motion quilting.
