Fabric from India

Posted by Barbara
Terry (my husband), Mark (Polly's husband) and myself went to India on a missions trip.  I was so fascinated with the ladies saris.  The ladies  were so colorful and neat all wrapped up in 6 yards of fabric.

I bought three saris and plan to make a quilt.  Not sure yet how I will make it.  Any suggestions?

This is my "Pinwheel Spin" pattern.  Last week I finished up a new "Pinwheel Spin" and sent the quilt to CA to be published in my new book. Parla (my daughter) and I worked on this quilt together.

sari fabric lends itself well to crazy quilts. I have several myself that I plan to use in a crazy quilt in the future.

I look forward to seeing what you quilt with the Saris. It will be a great memory quilt for you of your Mission trip.

And you are working on another book?? Yay!

My first book by C&T Publishing is
"Star Struck Quilts", the second book has not been given an official name. It will have to do with triangle block layouts and will not be published until Jan. 2012. Barbara Cline
