Ferns for Fernande
Hand dyed and commercial silks,
fused, machine quilted 17x20" or 43x51cm. since it is going to Luxembourg!
Every silk reflects the light differently. The charmeuse is a kind of satin and is the most reflective, unless you count the very very shiny dupionni. The bit of leaf at the upper right hand in the next picture is that dupionni.
I quilted this differently than I have ever done before. I used a finer poly thread and a finer needle. It worked beautifully. Size 75 and Coats and Clarks trilobal polyester in both the needle and the bobbin, and hot pink color throughout.
