Silk quilt

I first encountered Pauline Ineson at the NEC festival of quilts in Birmingham in 2010. What a lovely lady and so willing to share her talent. My friend and I were too eager to buy Paulines book “How to create an Heirloom quilt” we did this as soon as we came home, after that we spent the winter months buying silk, a little each month, plus the other supplies to make the quilt.
I cannot praise this book too highly, her instructions are very detailed, I had wanted to upgrade my sewing machine but now realise I just need to learn how to use the one I have more effectively.
Anyhoo this is the centre block for my quilt, it still needs a bead for the center but oh the fun i had creating it!
