Shards of silk

Progress is being made! "Shards" is how I've reconstructed the hand-dyed silk piece made with Ankie last year. I wondered how silk could be cutting and sharp? Shards ...
The stained glass look of the pieces is being quilted in mini-shards with gold shiva used to show the passage of light across the quilt face. Haven't decided on a binding - most likely some of the indigo fabrics, again dyed with Ankie.

It's so lovely to keep up with your prolificness on your blog.
I'm excited, I'll have an entry for 2QAQ this year. Back to it now.

I'd leave those lovely edges that shape & perhaps satin stitch? You are so creative, it is wonderfully inspring!

Suzanne - thank you. I'm relieved it's not part of being manic ... I was getting worried for a moment there - I do prefer prolificness. It goes with goddess! Big hug.
