    This is 8.75 in. square. The top is all silk from one of the interior decorator sample books I was given recently. All of the pieces in this were from the same book.

    The center was embroidered already, I just cut the largest piece I could from the sample book, then bordered it with pieces of other silks.

    The batting and backing and binding are cotton. I machine quilted with gold metallic thread.

    Hope you like it!

    P.S. This piece needs a name! If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    That is beautiful. How big is it? Great way to use fabric that would normally be thrown away.

    Very pretty. Silk is so hard to work with. You did a wonderful job.
