Oh the interesting things you learn about your co-workers. I had stopped by work for some reason or other, and co-workers commented on the skirt that I was wearing. The conversation then changed to Oceana looking for a quilter to finish a quilt that she and her husband had pieced. Next thing I know, Paul and Oceana, and their sweet dog were dropping off this quilt. All done in batiks, silk batting. The silk was a new on for me, and quite nice to work with Personally, think I prefer wool for the loft. They chose a thread called Colorburst, since it has all the colors of the quilt in the thread too. The picture really doesn't do justice to how beautiful this quilt turned out.
