Q&A with ageofreason45

4bird2 asked:
I want to pet it. This is gorgeous. Is the top quilted or did you do the border only. I was wondering what it's like to quilt on silk?
ageofreason45 answered:
The whole top is quilted, mostly in the ditch. The silk tends to slip, unless it is backed with stabilizer, and I only backed the lighter pieces. I didn't know how difficult silk was until I made my second quilt, which was cotton. I picked an easy oversize pattern and it barely took more than two weeks. Thanks for your comments
IngridFig asked:
I love the serenity of your quilt ...
ageofreason45 answered:
I've always liked making things with low contrast, they are more calming to me
