A Sea of Silk...
This year I am trying to finish some projects that I started (read: though about/purchased fabric for) last year. During some recent tidying I came across a shoe box full of fabric that I had been collecting for a quilt. The quilt was inspired by a trip to Kyo on a girls weekend away. It made me think about a Japanese inspired quilt, a soft pallet of greys & pinks using a mixture of cotton & silks.
I started collecting some Liberty & Nani Iro prints (from Patchwork on Central Park) & made the trip to Ziguzagu for some vintage Japanese silks.
I'm determined to start this project while I'm still excited about it, that way it may actually get finished this year.
