Make Me a Quilt : Patte's Quilt

Under a Silken Moon #3
Hand Dyed cottons and silks, fused, machine quilted. 17.5" x12.75"

Perhaps it was the 'third times a charm' idea, but this was heavenly to make. I had lots of fun using my special edition cottons and silks which I had been saving for something special, and having found it, I am so glad I did save them. Silk dupioni (one piece, the dark blue right under the moon), hand dyed charmeuse and shantung silks were included in this composition. FYI, when I dye silks, I use exactly the same process I use for cottons, nothing different or extra. I wanted to photograph the shine of these silks which is why I have included these angled shots, hoping to capture the iridescence. The sky fabric is sateen cotton, which is glossier than the regular cottons in the design.

I am SO PROUD OF  HER.

  17. Very lovely! I love how silks shimmer in the light, especially when they have been hand dyed and change colors. Very very nice.

    I can't wait to have a real live creation of yours to look at all the time.

  19. These pieces you have been creating are just stunning. I missed the original post about why and who you are making them for, but boy are they LUCKY! The quilting in the ilk in this last piece is gorgeous. Do you dye the silk dupioni? I work with it a lot and have tried dyeing it and it just loses its sheen.
