Silk Orange Peel quilt, by Stacey Sharman

Silk Orange Peel quilt, 63 x 63″, by Stacey Sharman, at  Peppermint Pinwheels

These silks, which reflect the light so well, were either samples or remnants – approximately 4.5 x 12″- from a factory that makes neckties. Stacey has blended the muted, yet eye-catching colors into a sparkling rainbow palette. Her “Silk Orange Peel” was based on the contemporary “Indian Orange Peel” pattern by Karen K. Stone. Stacey notes that “All foundation-pieced is the only way to go with silk quilting.”  The results are gorgeous, as you can see here !
