My Silk Crazy














Here are some pics of the blocks I have been working on lately. Each block is 12 inches and is the fabrics are 99.5 silk (I don't know how those other fabrics snuck their way in). I still need to make 4 more blocks to make it square. I have stitched on this while traveling this weekend and am pleased that I can actually see results. I am going to make this my '15 minutes a day' stitching project.

I am trying to stay away from beads on this quilt and make it mainly a stitching quilt as far as seams are concernted... some lace appliques and buttons have been added.

I hope to post all of the blocks in the coming days.

  1. I especially love the curved piecing. Looking good and so glad you had a fair amount of time to stitch while travelling this weekend! My travel day is tomorrow -- going down to San Antonio -- three blissful hours of stitching! :-)

  3. So lovely, Lillian - I always enjoy looking at your creations. Made on the Featherweight, perhaps?

  5. Your stitching is soooo delicate!!! I love that seam where you have the pink ribbon stitches, they look like rose petals placed on your block. What size ribbon is it? It looks like either 7mm or 13mm.
