Happy 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 I originally made this quilt for her, but she quilted it for me as a gift for Christmas!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.
— 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!
