I am back at work on the fused silk teapots.It was a bit dark in the studio because I have all the curtains drawn to keep out the heat. As a result the colors are not looking nearly as bright as they really are. I have the teapots all fused on and sewn together. Now I have no idea how I am going to quilt them. I put iron on interfacing on the back of each square so they would be a bit more stable for sewing together and for the quilting but I am at a bit of a loss as to just how I will actually quilt them. I am also thinking I might not put a border on, just an envelope style backing. I thought of using one of the brocades for the binding but it frays very badly and almost the second it is cut so I am not sure I want to go through that. Any ideas would be greatlay appreciated.
