Silk Sampler

Inspired by a German quilt magazine, I've tried free motion quilting on silk, and also some hand quilting with silk embroidery yarn. I must admit I feel more comfortable with cotton, but the result wasn't too bad (I cut away the worst parts.....!). Clicking on the photo will show the details.

Shopping bags

Plastic shopping bags can be handy, but I like the cotton ones better. These were fun to make as well, I've used silk screens for the mauve and the black, discharge paste on the mauve, fabric paint on the black. You'll find them in my shop.

Elephant

Inspired by the British magazine "Stitch", I have embroidered this wall hanging, size 13 x 14". The piece with flowers is a sunprint from last year which I used as pattern for the embroidery. The edging is strips of sari silk. I also used these strips for the elephant. I used shisa mirrors in the embroidery. They don't show up very well, but if you click on the photo, you'll get an idea...

Crib Quilts

I've finished two small crib quilts, size 60 x 75 cm. They are machine quilted, and I used wool as batting. Both are for sale in my shop.

A Perfect Easter

I've spent Easter in Italy - in Tuscany and Liguria. I think the photos describe a perfect holiday! In addition; lovely food and wine..........and of course; Italian icecream!
