Silk Fusion

Here are my first two silk fusion postcards. In the first one, I embellished the fused silk fibers with chainstitch. The background cotton fabric is hand dyed.
In the next one, I cut my fused fibers into small pieces that I machine stitched. The background is a fabric I dyed with onion skins.
Yesterday, I made a few more small sheets of fused silk fibers. I have three more cards to do for this swap.

Thank you for your comment. Its nice to see some handstitching, chain stitch and herringbone, and fascinating to see the French name for a stich.

I've taken my silk fusion supplies to the studio and if I stay on task with my goals and get the quilts complete, making the silk fusion will be my reward...love the stuff! I really like the first card.
