The Quilt of Many Colors

imageHappy Monday! For this weeks Memorable Monday project post I am excited to share one of my all time favorite quilts.  I call it “The Quilt of Many Colors” for obvious reasons.  I used the pattern  Morning Star from a book called Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth and Charlene Thode

This quilt is made with beautiful silk fabric from China. A few years ago, a good friend of mine gave me a stack of 5″ silk squares because she didn’t know what to do with them. Her mother went on a trip to China and brought them home for her.  I absolutely loved the colors and was so excited to make a nickel quilt out of them. I originally made this quilt for her, but she quilted it for me as a gift for Christmas!  It was a fun surprise:).

I have taken this quilt on several cruises and curled up with it on the balcony. Flight attendants have stopped me and marveled at it. This one is really that pretty.

image— Funny story about this quilt, my son was having a bonfire out back and decided he needed a blanket to snuggle up in while enjoying the outside party. Yep, the quilt smelled like smoke and I absolutely was not going to wash the silk! I was so angry at that pill!!  But I hung it out on the line to air out and it did clean up well. – Children. What are you going to do?

Thank you for stopping by and I hope yours is a SWEET Monday!
