The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Dreamy Blue" by Youngmin Lee
Do a puzzle of Youngmin Lee's quilt, Dreamy Blue.
Half paper and half silk, Dreamy Blue by Youngmin Lee is a quilt that you really can't understand until you get up close and personal with it. When woven together the warp is made of silk fiber and the weft out of mulberry paper, a plant from Asia that both paper and fiber is created from. This combination allows the quilt to have the sheen of silk, but also the sturdiness of paper.
