My Sister, I Think I'll Keep Her

I love my sister. Not only did she drive us to Lancaster for the AQS show last week, but look what she gave me.

 
Yes, that is a metal tin that contains 16 dupioni silk fat quarters, and a pattern to go with them.

 
Aren't they just luscious? I have to open the tin and run my fingers across them every day.
 
 
And I think I see something in my Kaffe Fassett stash that would be the perfect backing. One more fun project to look forward to.

But next up has to be either the pineapple quilt

 
Or the Indigo Quilt


Hmmm...I think I'm going to need to repaint the bedroom (and consequently, the master bath) to something neutral that can handle all the color variation in my upcoming projects. Hmmm....I wonder if my sister likes to paint. (Kidding, Sandy!--what about Scott?).
 
It's almost the weekend! Do you have your projects planned?

  1. Have you ever quilted with silk? I can't wait to hear what you think about it. Not many people do, so there aren't many to share it with. I enjoyed it so much that I'm excited FOR you. Lane
