    Love it!!! What kind of silk do you like to use? I always get confused with the different types of silk. Do you use any of your silks in quilts?

    I learned at the on line Quilt University, which no longer exists, and YouTube. A lot of trial and error!

    Yes there a many weights of silk, all are gorgeous! I have used my hand dyed silks to make Origami flowers to incorporate into my quilting. Doing Japanese Shibori Tie Dyeing on cotton and Rayon is fun too!!!!!

    Tie-dye is my favorite fabric. Now I can make my own. I've only tie dyed t-shirts!
