Silk Tumblers Panel

There were so many rules to sewing with silk that I'd forgotten, simple things, such as changing to a brand new, appropriately-sized, sewing machine needle -- I should have called my sewing goddess, Nedra Michalek, for advice first! A lot of seams were unstitched and resewn due to shifting under the presser foot (and oh those bias edges!), but I stayed calm and it's finished now. There are sheers in my stash, also shibori-dyed, to be added for texture. Free-form random organic shapes, raw edges and lots of handsewing are filling my head. This panel measures 20" x 40".
