Tuesday’s Twilt … Wisteria

WisteriaHaving crashed for a few days after my latest road trip I am refreshed and ready to get to work.

Todays Twilt is “Wisteria”, silk ribbon embroidery on crinkled fabric with machine  stitching and couched  glittery threads. The frame of this piece has Cathedral Window corners. I have some ideas for more complex Cathedral Window corners coming up in future twilts.

Wisteria DetailThe silk ribbon I used is from my collection of ribbons that I painted and dyed a while back. I have really enjoyed revisiting the silk ribbon work that I enjoyed so much in the past. Expect to keep seeing more.

  1. Your quilt looks fanstastic! I love the ribbon embroidery. I’ve never tried it, but maybe I should!

    • Thanks Bethany, You should try it. I recommend anything by Judith Baker Montano. I self taught from her first silk ribbon book.
