Memories of the Silk Road, made by yours truly in 2005. measures 18.5x15" is it's currently in my JaneVille Etsy shop. This is one of the first quilts I made and still one of my faves. It's made from old prayer flags (the Tibetan kind) and bits of silk and all hand stitched. I don't think I owned a sewing machine at the time.

  1. This is lovely, Jane - there is just something so pure about hand stitching. Of course, being a quilter of the 21st century, I started with a machine and am only recently getting back into hand work, which I haven't done since childhood. Thanks for all your beautiful work and inspiration!!
