Well after such a long time looking for the right colour of silk Dupion fabric to finish the family quilt...it's all done.
When looking for the right colour, I found, Ruby, Muscat, Claret, Wine, Maroon, Dark Red...(it was like looking at wine labels !) all just within a shade or two of each other, then just as I had nearly given up I came across this Burgundy silk, just the perfect shade that I needed.....and to top it off, I found it just a 20 minutes drive away from home.
Along the top border, I embroidered the word 'Memories" highlighting the letter M with Fargo roses, French knots and tiny buds. I think this looks brighter and shows up better than the first one did and posted a few days ago.
The quilt is not very big, just a metre square, just big enough to hold these memories on it and a keepsake for the kids to have in the future...
