A big thank you to my clever and learned friend Jennifer (aka The Bronze Wombat) who came to my aid with the proper term for this iridescent silk. I termed it "duplicitous" but the correct word of course is "shot". You can read a little more about the process on Wikipedia.
Last week, fellow quilter Lesley invited me to meet a couple of her visiting quilting friends. Over tea at Bella's with Jane and Berni, I discovered I had met 2/3 of the Sheltered Cove Maritime Quilt Co.! (as well as another Mayflower).
