Silk Paper

Today at Contemporary Quilt Group Lois demonstrated using silk fibres to make silk 'paper' aka known as silk fusion or silk felt. While I have done this technique before, other members had not, and I happily took along some of the bits I had in my cupboard.

This is the piece I made. The stringy bits are not properly bonded and I am sure it will look a lot better for some stitching, but I am pretty pleased with this. It was a half hour's effort and took only 20 minutes or so to dry, thanks to another fine hot day. Yes, the weather is lovely, but oh, I am longing for some rain.
