    velvet-backed silk wholecloth quilt

    I made this quilt for my daughter who loves teal. The main top fabric is a hand-painted upholstery/drapery silk remnant, which I couldn't resist when I saw it at a local decorating store many years ago. The back is purple velvet from a duvet cover that constantly malfunctioned, until I was forced to take it apart and put the fabrics in my stash. The additional fabric on the front was leftover from a quilt I made for a customer, and the extras on the back came from leftovers of various sewing projects of my mother's, given to me when she stopped sewing about 12 years ago.

    I am happy to have finished a quilt, reduced my stash and pleased my daughter. My daughter is happy that she is now warm at night!
