Silk Star

This is the first (& only) quilt I've made using silk -- Cambodian silk.  The silk had to be backed with an iron-on stabilizer but still would shred like mad when handled.  I swore never again would I work with silk after I completed this in January 2007.  It's also about 36" square.

  1. It's beautiful. But I agree; working with silk is a b****! I had to iron on this interfacing to all of the fabrics before I could start cutting and still, it frayed like crazy. I'm not going to make another silk quilt in a hurry either ;).
