That's right the traditional Indian ladies attire. These are beautiful silk saris from a customer who is Indian. She wants these made into to a quilt for her bed. I made one for her last year for her twin guest bed and she loves it so much she wants a bigger one for her own bed. The silks are just beautiful but are not the easiest to sew. I am making French seams which takes more time but also keeps the fabrics from fraying. The past few days I have been cutting these into strips and resewing the strips. Hopefully in a few more days those strips will evolve into blocks.
I think the best thing about making this quilt is that I am gifted with the leftover and the saris are each have about 6 yards of fabric. I am not sure what to do with them yet but the sure are pretty.
