Extraordinary Quilt


Absolutely amazing quilt made by Stacey of
Peppermint Pinwheels, she calls this quilt Silk Orange Peel.

Stacey says, "The tie silks I used were actually either samples or remnants from a factory that made neck-ties. They weren't ever finished into ties, but were about 4-1/2" by 12" (app.) pieces.
To make the quilt I used a paper-piecing technique, but used muslin instead of paper to add stability. I also used a pattern by quilt-maker Karen K. Stone."


I noticed that Karen Stone suggests using scraps from neckties and the paper-piecing technique in at least two of her patterns:
Enticement

and
Untitled
