A Different Sort of Quilt

 When I arrived at the Victoria Quilt Guild Show this past weekend, I could hardly believe my eyes!  Yes, it's fabric, not paint.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the multitude of quilts and I was struck by just how much heart goes into their making -
 and how I love their softness.  I felt so refreshed afterwards that I could imagine I might make a traditional bed quilt sometime in the future.  I especially loved the hand pieced and hand quilted ones, but there were many other kinds of beauties, as well.
 Since I am primarily felting these days, I decided I'd use silk I've dyed, in a traditional design,
 to nuno felt.  Lots of one inch pieces and a bit tricky...
But it worked and opens a door to further exploration.
