My favourite quilts
I have made quilts for many many years. When I lived in England I used to go to local boot fairs and often buy second hand, silk saris, I loved them because the colours were so vibrant. The trousers were very useful to me as they had masses of material in them . I would always cut just the trousers up and soon had accumulated a good pile of various colours. I kept the tops and the long lengths that went with the outfits.
The quilt in the photograph is the first quilt I made using mainly those pieces of silk. Each square measures about 7 inches and is a sort of log cabin around a starting point of a small square.
