Along with a t-shirt and one other quilt I’ve been working on the “Serendipity” series.
This is “Serendipity As Well”.
As with the “City” series it’s a whole cloth concept quilt. French Silk top, silk batting, silk thread and this one has a silk backing.
I am having a lot of fun with the density of quilting. There’s about 6 hours into this quilt right now.
Because the silk thread is so fine the density of quilting is rather intense. I love that I can stitch over a line and not have a lot of bulk as I quilt. I’m really beginning to see why quilters enjoy quilting with silk and lower weight polyesters.
Because they are so fine there is a wholly different dynamic in the quilting process. I could almost use a magnifying glass as I stitch! In a few days I’ll post more on “Staten Island Sunset” I’m getting more fabric and Misty Fuse. Once I have the hand dyed silk organza fused to the Robert Kaufman Radiance I’ll post pics.
