What are you most proud of? I'm very happy with the choice of background color which reflects light with every movement and am glad I decided to tie it on the back side so as to not detract from the design and fabrics.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think seriously before deciding to use silk - it is so hard to cut into strips.

This is amazing..how long did it take?

Thank you for your kind words. I honestly don't know how long it took. I worked on it from time to time over about 4 months but never for a long, sustained time. I'm getting ready to make another one during this winter and use his darker colored ties; mostly reds & blues with ivory silk for the lighter color. I'll try to keep track of the time a little better.

This is so lovely. Is it difficult working with the silk? I have only ever really used cotton for my quilts.

Thank you. Actually, its just a log cabin pattern. I didn't really have a 'pattern', I just cut all my strips and the center square 2 1/2".
