July AAQI Quilt - Kimono
The base fabric on the front is some sort of taffeta from the stash, one of those yummy fabrics that changes colour as the light hits it. It could even be silk but I'm not sure. The back is gold silk (for sure) and the binding is a batik. Nothing like mixing it up! The kimono itself is made of quilting cotton and is a sort of folded, origami type of thing.
And, yes, you are correct in assuming that one strange little button in the corner is not really an artistic statement - it is because I couldn't get that corner to miter properly. Well, it could still be an artistic statement!
