At first I tried putting them on my design wall, a tablecloth pinned on the wall. The silks would not adhere to the wall. Then I placed a sheet on the bed and used that as my design wall. Taking a picture of it really allows you to see the separations of the light and dark.
There are problems with silk that I have been pondering, but haven't made a decision yet. Should I put on an interface backing. Some of the silks are very flimsy and sheer. Should I hand piece them?
I still have a long way to go. But it is taking shape. Now back to cutting more triangles.

Here is a picture that Resse drew of her new puppy Oreo. It was such a cute picture that I made a bag for her. I copied the picture onto a pretreated Bubble Jet Set fabric with freezer paper backing. I used the leftover Cherrywood fabrics to make the surrounding borders, handle straps and backing. There is a zipper close and japanese fabric for the interior.
These two bags took me 1 day to complete. Simple, no embellishments, no quilting, no beads. The girls are growing so quickly, I hope they don't outgrow cute and simple things.

These are some of the quilts from the Santa Rosa Quilt Show presented by the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County.
This pineapple block is offset and has some beautiful feather quilting.
