I really am not complaining as it was lovely to work with silk, but at the same time it wasn't as the fibres just flew all over the place - mainly onto me, and was very itchy.... the worst possible day to wear a dark red jumper.... LOL .... (ignore the unflattering angle!!!!) the quilt results were worth the itching though as it quilted up just beautifully, and the silk wadding is light and lofty.
The quilt was made by my customer Katie, and she chose the Hearts n Roses design and a buttercup yellow thread. It was my first time quilting on silk and luckily it didn't present any problems at all. (well except for the itching....)
The centre is an embroidered silk panel, surrounded by some gorgeous solid colours... love that purple...
