Anne, my Oct swap partner in England, loves using silks and brocades in her blocks.
So for her I used a deep purple silk dupioni and a gold detailed print with an asian flair in a Friendship Square Block.
I had some extra fabric so I decided to make a 9-patch for Glenys in Australia.
She loves deep rich colors. I'm not sure if using silks is included in that grouping... but I'm sure she'll like it!
