Miniature top done! I had a jolly time playing with all the red silks in this piece. Started out by making a fan. It was nice, but it just didn't look right along side the 'made fabric' neutral background.
Then I tried cutting up the fan and making 3" squares for the center. That was fun! But the neutral 'made fabric' took away from the main event...
So I abandoned the 'made neutrals' and went with the remaining solid silk pieces....all except for those corner blocks. I had run out of reds by then, so they are totally random, too.
Now comes the quilting question.... I wish I could FMQ some little Amish feathers in the solid triangles, but I know my limitations. Any volunteers???
