I have this idea of a quilt... but I can't explain it. It's all in my head *lol*
Well - today I recieved a new usb cable for my camera so I took some photos of my rather large collection.
Of course I overdid it.
I have ties enough for several quilts. And no - this is only half of the ties I've collected, the rest is ... somewhere;-)
There are ties from all over the world. No. 3 top left is from Air Namibia - which feels rather exotic to me.
And those are probably the only items from Balmain, Cardin & Dior I'll ever afford!
Some of the colors and patterns are just insanely beautiful!!!! Look at the red one with the lobsters and lemons!!
I think of this quilt every.single.day.
Can't decide which pattern to use, can't decide whether to machinepiece or handpiece, can't decide if I should make a reproduction of one of the quilts I saw at Claverton Manor in Bath (UK) or make a very modern style type of quilt.
I have already had a very helpful mailconversation with a blogfriend about various things to consider when you work with silk, so I feel well prepared. I just need to decide the pattern and style.
It will be made.
I promised myself:-)
