• Trips Around the Silk Route

    April 21, 2016

    Ingrid Huber has sent in some photos of her take on the Trip Around the World pattern using Oakshott fabrics she acquired at the 2015 Festival of Quilts and a dark red fabric from her stash: 2016-04-21Trips around the Silk Route (2)
    "I choose a 'Trip around the World' pattern and put a different colour in the center of each pattern. So I tried to highlight each of the 9 colours ... I call the quilt 'Trips around the Silk Route' – a name very suitable for this quilt, isn’t it? In the stripes between the blocks I quilted horses, donkeys, camels and yaks wandering around the blocks  – all animals which were used for transporting goods on the Silk Route in medieval times." 2016-04-21DSC08755 And I managed to make three cushions from the rest."
