Here’s a sneak peak of the Superior Kimono Silk I purchased for my next quilt.
I’ve figured out that this will be the 3rd piece in the “Twilight in the Bronx” series. I have some ideas floating around in my head that will eventually be worked out on this quilt.
The blue seen in the background is from Kaufman’s Radiance line.
I really love the hand of this fabric line and how it quilts.
The colors are amazing. What I didn’t know when I ordered this is that some of the spools have Gina Perkes name on the label. Gina is a phenomenal machine quilter. I watched her quilt on a long arm on The Quilt Show and was able to take what she did and teach my students the technique.
I’m really looking forward to playing with this thread and seeing how it compares to other silk threads I’ve used.
I’m planning on using Hobbs silk batting for the quilt. It quilts up so beautifully. One thing I’m not sure of is whether this quilt will have any trapunto. Right now it doesn’t seem to be calling for it however, once I get started it may change.
PS as soon as I have some kind of sampler I’ll post again.
