Sari Quilt Done



I finally finished the Sari quilt. Seems like this one took forever. India silk is very delicate which means it is slippery and does not like to play nice when you try to lay it out on the grain. Once cut it will fray if you even breath therefore each seam is a French seam...............in other words sewn twice on this double bed sized quilt.
