This is my silk duponi quilt. I have collected the silk colors for a couple of years and knew how I was going to make the quilt. The silk was backed with a soft stabilizer so it would not fray. Then I hooped a polymesh stabilizer and added wool batting and then the silk fabric. The designs are from two of Sharon Schamber's Design Collections. The designs were embroidered on my new 10-needle Babylock Enterprise. The quilt is 20.75 inches square. I could not decide which color to use to bind the quilt, so I used a two color binding of a deep red and soft pink.
This is Ker Bloom!, a kit I purchased in Paducah from Vogies. It has beautiful Frond fabric and great colors. My friend quilted it with a modern quilting pattern. It was a pretty quilt until I added the green binding on the black border. Now it is a beautiful quilt. The binding made it really special and pulled all the colors together. My husband is the proud owner because he really liked it.
