He loved it! Silk quilt finished and delivered ..
Yeah ... I'm finished and Scott loved the quilt and pillow! My gal who quilts my larger quilts on her longarm machine fell in love with the quilt and actually took it to her quilting group at the LQS for show & tell! She did a great job on the quilting! I did the binding by sewing the various strips of fabric together to make a long strip. I really like the "variegated" look it made on the binding. I had a strip which actually had "Tommy Bahama" on it so I used that on the backing. I lucked out with that strip! Beside the silk shirts I had to work with, Scott also gave me 2 rayon shirts, so I made a pillow out of them. The one white shirt just had the large embroidery on the back & it was perfect for the pillow front. I think the other shirt made a great backing and cording for the pillow. He really liked the pillow. I'm happy that this project is over, but it was a fabulous experience for me. Scott was blown away with the finished products. I truly wanted to give him a quilt that would depict his shirts & I think this pattern really shows each shirts. Some of the pictures are before I put the binding on the quilt.
Now it's on to the next!!
