Sari Silk challenge
The Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild had a visit from Cathy at Steam Trunk Craftworks at our last meeting. She brought with her an assortment of Sari silk ribbons and woven threads and challenged us to DO SOMETHING with it. I took a package of the woven threads and couched them onto a square of Kona white. Added a whack of hand quilting in different colours of perle cotton and then put the whole shebang together as a pillow. This pillow is just the right size for Mum to put behind her back when she is visiting. She likes a pillow behind her when she is sitting down and getting comfy. I used a fabulous Japanese gold embroidery thread to do the couching of the sari threads. It has a nice little glitter to it. Perfect for the sari threads after all.
