If you have a computer driven long-arm, there are thousands of designs to try like this. Did the dupioni give you any special problems? Thanks for this. What a great way to try many designs.

Hi. I made sure I serged the edges of the silk so it didn't fray. The binding has a tendency to wave, even though I've blocked the quilt. I think I'll take the binding off and remeasure to make sure it's exactly the blocked dimensions. Other than that, a new needle and you sh oudl be good to go.
