Vintage silk from Japan

I've been playing with the beautiful fabrics i bought in Japan. I have decided I cannot bear to cut this one  and so am faced with "What will I make from it?" I have decided to quilt it as is for a table topper. If you have any better suggestions please  - I'm wanting some! It's too fragile to make a bag from it. The beautiful design is too big to cut up. I think I will free quilt it by hand around the flowers and leaves first, then maybe do the red bits in a kind of contour quilting. What do you reckon?


  1. A kantha/sashimi stitch in the red sounds great

  2. Why does my I iPad do that I meant sashiko stitch not sashimi.

  3. It's one of those annoying self-correcting thingies. My phone does it with texting too.
