Still working with silk, which is lovely but slightly demanding. I’m using silk batting in this piece and dupion silk for the backing, both of which can be difficult to work with. Silk batting needs a lot of ‘fussing’ with before it will sit properly, though it’s delightful to stitch by hand. I decided to use batting to give a little extra substance, and also a little extra dimension. It quilts beautifully.
You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
