Well, of course I didn't make this whole quilt today. I've been working on it for a little while and finished sewing down the binding last night. I made one very similar a couple years ago to be part of a Fiber Revolution exhibit in Botswana, Africa and it sold! I was so excited to think that I have a quilt of mine hanging on a wall somewhere in Africa. I sent another quilt to a show there again this year, but this one was made to replace the one that sold and be part of a traveling exhibit.
This quilt is made entirely of Dupioni silk. It is a slightly different layout than the first one. This one has lighter colors in the center and radiates out to darker around the edges. The first one was just random placement of the colors. I'm very fond of working with the silk and like the luster that you get with the quilting.
