Chinese cloth and Inidan silk

 I just finished reading Janet Bolton's book "Patchwork Folk Art." And I really read the whole thing. She has a delightful style and an amazing sense of composition. I've started this piece using silk and a bit a trim from an old chinese jacket that I wore for years, and bits of dupioni silk.


  1. I have some silk blouses I really have "grown out off" but can't bear to part with. Now you have got me thinking ....

  2. Oh boy, silk is such a delight to stitch on. My callused gardener's hands catch and I find myself using lavendar lotion which adds scent to the project. I love hte colors you've used! I'll have to check out the book.

  3. so, which one was from your jacket? I'm so glad that you have reused!
