Time flies when you are having fun!

Silk Hand-painted Comforter/ Throw.
60" x 45"
100% imported Silk w/ Fleece backing.
Traditional Silk Painting Dyes/ Steam set.
As usual I am always looking for new things to create to sell and to fill peoples lives and homes wiht beauty. I came upon this idea of a sensuous and expensive looking throw for a sofa or a chair or across the bed. My friends all are waiting in live for theirs!
Using traditional Silk painting and setting techniques, the heavy silk-satin is hand-painted with a landscape image either imagined or from a commisisioners prefered photo of a loved place. Once the Satin is painted and color set, the silk is then quilted to a fine fleece backing and stiched around the border to keep it in place. The throw is then tuft quilted with contrasting threads to keep the fleece and silk aligned. The Silk side is very cool and sensuous to the touch, and the fleece side provides warmth and comfort on a cool evening. Each is a one of a kind heirloom.

Create beauty and fill the world with love!
