A friend is in Laos for a month and offered to bring back some silk fabrics for me to quilt with. I am far from being a "seasoned" quilter. I have no idea what to do with it when it arrives. Does anyone have any suggestions as how to handle the fabric because I am quite sure that it will have its own specific set of problems. Also, what kind of pattern would you suggest? I know there are some great ideas out there from this wonderful quilting board that I have had the opportunity to interact with. Thanks so much ahead of time.
