Flower Power Silk
From time to time I delve into my many boxes of silk scraps and put a few together to make small quilts. Usually triangles are involved since that is the shape that many of the scraps are in when I get them. Often vintage buttons are used for embellishment as well as to cover my poor corner seams. This piece had pretty sharp corners so it is buttonless. At the rate of one project a year I may be in the learning phase of working with silk for quite a long time. It is going on a decade already.
The fabrics are beautiful, but the colors I chose don't do much to make the room feel warmer. Next winter when the boxes come out I will "think red".
