Kbrison,  your quilts are beautiful. The first one is my favorite because it has lots of colors and animals in the center squares. The purse is gorgeous.

Thanks for thinking about me, but the compliments belong to my quilting friend, carolmb!  And, yes, she does great work!

Question for you guys: Does anyone have any advice for sewing with a slippery silk brocade fabric? I have a beautiful pillowcase that never gets used but I might try to repurpose it into a top, but I've cut into it's twin before and it frays and falls apart in a heartbeat. Help?! Thanks  Grin

sheepblue--I have yards and yards of Chinese brocade that literally falls apart when cut...here is what I have done to use this fabric:

1.  If the fabric is not too stiff, you can use featherweight interfacing behind it. The interfacing will help control that horrible fraying!

2. Use commercially available Fray check...you can outline your shape half and inch or more.  Wait until it is dry, and then cut along the edge of it.  It is a bit stiff and will not wash out.

3.  If you plan on finishing all of the seams, and do not like the stiffness of fray check, use washable glue. After you are done finishing the seams with a serger of zig zag, wash the glue out..or leave it...it will not hurt anything and is not as stiff.

4. If the brocade is a polyester type, you can "melt" the edges using a small quilting iron or a soldering tool.  I only do this if I am using the brocade for prayer flags, or other artsy projects.


WOW!  I will need my lunch hour to review the gallery of goodies!  I see lots of new stuff!

OMG!  What an explosion of wonderfulness. 

The leis are wonderful yoopidou!  Been immersed in serious hula dancing this month with the Hokule'a's arrival in DC.  Our halau has crafted various leis for it.

It's hard to get fresh ti leaves here out in D.C.  LOL.

Thank you thank you! I was wondering if interfacing would help. Now I know what to do  Grin
