“Wild Roses”, this Tuesday’s Twilt, combines the technique I developed ten years ago, Cathedral Windows by Machine with a technique I love and had missed, Silk Ribbon mbroidery. The borders of this Twilt have three-dimensional triangles with their bias folds rolled into curves, the part that is Cathedral Windows.
The background is a crinkled batik that I quilted with different colors of thread. The ribbons used for the roses came from my collection of silk ribbon that I have painted and dyed.
I hope you like it!

Just a quick Twilt for this Tuesday. “Blue Dragonflies” started out with a embroidered block that I picked up from Georgia’s Quilting Obession. The Indigo fabrics came from Cotton in the Cabin. I picked them up quite some time ago and I think they were made in Africa. I placed the block in the center and sewed strips around it log cabin style. Super Simple!
