This is going to be my most ambitious project (or possibly just the most arrogant!) It’s a wholecloth quilt on white silk with white silk thread over silk batting and a black satin binding to finish.
I’ve been picking up the pieces for this one for years- when I got the silk thread, it was in skeins of 1000 yards. tha1980s helped me wind it onto spools one night after I’d lost half of one of the skeins to tangles.
I really have two reasons I haven’t started this- first, if I make any mistakes at all, they will show and if I pick them out, it will still be obvious where I made the mistake. The second is what kind of pattern to use. I have a couple that I want to incorporate elements of, but I have to create the entire pattern- and then figure out how to mark it!
