|Wrack Line X: Winter Tides|
I knew I wouldn't have enough silk, especially if I saved some for the quilt top, so I decided to make yo-yos out of the lining as well. Since the lining was just a little darker and not as shiny, this added a nice contrast.
I had some cream dupioni sitting around to make other yo-yos with, but I decided to try a double layer back. I can't remember where I saw this technique of framing the quilt, but I thought it might work to make the ice colored yo-yos pop. It was a little bland with just the blue and white, but in a cleaning spree, I found some orange silk to add some contrast.
I pillow-cased the two silk quilt layers and quilted the larger one with a walking foot in a wave pattern (even dupioni is terribly slippery). The cream layer is sewed down only by the stitiching of the yo-yos. I'll add French knots when I find the right color thread.
Even though this photo is awful, this quilt and two others in the series have been juried into the Aullwood Show "Water, Water Everywhere."
