Saffron flower ...

 Saree Quilt


I hope you will not get tired seeing another saree quilt of mine. I could not resist when I came across this cotton saree at the thrift store couple of months ago, for $4.99. I love the colour, and as soon as I saw, I knew I would want to make quilt.


The golden colour of the material inspired me to start with a saffron flower, and while sketching patterns I also thought about adding a marigold flower.


For the saffron flower, I am using folded bias tape cut out from a blue voile, and as for the marigold flower, I still have not decided how it should be done.

I have made some progress on the ripple pattern as well.


Thank you for coming by today,

till my next post,

  5. What fantastic material, and so chealp, to use for a quilt; the elegant red border is there already and with a saffron-flower you'll have a colourful quilt.
