    Here is a crazy quilt I made. I always wanted to do one, love hand work. I used silk scraps.

    I sold the first one to a lady who loved it, then I made another one. I am going to give this one to my sister, she has an old house with a formal Victorian parlor.

    on the first one, a black linen-like fabric. Something similar will go on the second one.

    Beautiful. This will go very well in a Victorian type house.
    Your sis will love it, and so will her visitors.

    I have always wanted to do one of these, and seeing yours, which is drop dead gorgeous, inspires me.

    Wonderful quilts, the second looks like folk art. It must be difficult working with the silk. Your embroidery is beautiful.
