Superior Spotlight: Jan O.

Posted: 21 November 2014 at 6 a.m.

Janet has some serious talent! She was so kind and shared with us a beautiful quilt, which she has just completed.  This gorgeous commissioned piece, Karen’s Katz, turned out rather spectacular.  This quilt is made with 3 silk scarves which required Janet to remove the hems, interface and add stabilizer in order for the fabric to stay together.  The cat fabric is cotton and the black and magenta fabric is silk. 

Pieced with care, she used our 60 wt. Bottom Line polyester thread to achieve the very fine seams necessary. Janet decided to use black Kimono Silk and MonoPoly invisible polyester thread to complete the fine details of her quilt.
