Listen to the Fabrics!

This morning my red silks were all fanned out on my table.  I sewed them all together and cut into a 7" block.  I have wanted to make a silk fan quilt for a long time.  Maybe this is it...

I added a black border and it looked like it would be a good center for an Amish Diamond-in-the-Square quilt.  Made fabric from neutrals for the side triangles.  But the combination just didn't sing to me...

The reds needed a little improv, too!  I hear ya!


  1. Oh you are having fun! I can't wait to start mine this weekend. ox

  2. Looking good!
    I started making the made fabric background and have sketched out my design! hopefully can get some time on the weekend!

  3. Well my effort for the challenge will have to wait until early November, I do love your reds Helen and the muted colours in the other silks.
