Silk suggestions

Along with the wax prints I posted last week came these scraps of silk.

Many moons ago when I was a novice embroiderer, doing City and Guilds, I used silk, but not since and now, while I like how these look, I really haven't the faintest idea what to do with them.  Any ideas?


  1. Gorgeous pieces! I have only ever used non-cotton fabrics in wall hangings, so that I don't have to worry so much about them shrinking differently or wearing out at different rates from other fabrics in the project. I know I'm kind of a chicken on this, though, and I know there are people out there using multiple kinds of fabrics in beautifully successful quilts. I hope one of them pops in to help you out! :)

  2. I have no ideas for you, but wow are they pretty!

  3. It's not a quilting idea, but you could use some of it to cover buttons ans up-cycle old clothes KJZ

  4. Oh good idea, and even if I did something quilty, there would be button-sized scraps.


Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
