Has anyone quilted a piece using men's silk ties? I would like to 3 small wall hangings using my husband's ties. I'm thinking about paper piecing. Any suggestions for working with silk and pattern suggestions?
I'm toying with my Hexie quilt ideas while sewing them together. I'm thinking of enlarging the hexagons from 2.2 inches to 5 inches then cutting them in half so there will be a seam down the center of them. Maybe a 6 inches or larger - would look better? I may have to toy with the size. My idea is to give them a real hand worked look.
I love making hexies there is something zen about hand sewing them.
I would have never dreamed I would be hand quilting and enjoying
