Using silk in your work

I am using more and more silk in my art quilts. I love the luminosity that it brings to the pieces and I love the way the colors blend together in much a milky way kind of  blend on the silk. Here are just a few examples of recent pieces.IMG_2418

Of course all of these are fused, but aren’t they just yummy!

Such a luminous glow to the silk fabrics. Love those colors! Your Jack in the Pulpit designs are wonderful.

I love the Jack-in-the-Pulpit -- the color radiates. Beautiful works, Frieda!

Yes, they are really beautiful, but I've ALWAYS loved your work, anyway. The silk just shows off your color and design sense more!
