Would you ever make a cathedral windows quilt out of silk? Lisa Ellis did and it's breathtaking.

Lisa's quilt, Effervescence, was on display at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018 as part of the Alternative Techniques exhibit.

I am so pleased by everyone's lovely comments about my quilt and what a surprise to see it on the blog! I will be teaching this technique in Houston at the International Quilt Festival this fall. Also I will be on the Quilt Show in 2020 and will demonstrate how to make it!

Your colors are exquisite. I am a cathedral windows fan and love to make them.
Please teach us how to make them using your "mock" method.

I’M curious. What did you use for backing on this beautiful quilt?

Love how colors in silk always pop. Love the border that the black makes the windows look look like the border is scalloped
