My Korean Quilt

It's finally done. I had bought a bunch of Korean satin when we lived in South Korea with the intention of making a quilt. I made the quilt for the bed in our guest room which happens to be the Korean room since there are so many Korean things in it.

The pictures don't really portray how bold and beautiful the colors are.

This stripe looks like I sewed all the stripes together but if you are Korean you may know what it is. It's material they use for the sleeves of a hanbok and it comes striped. I used the material in the border of the quilt. I want to buy more of this next time I'm in Seoul.

I hired a gal with a long arm to quilt the piece for me. I could never make it look so nice just using my sewing machine. I'm just thrilled with how it turned out.

  1. Beautiful! I love the bright colors and the black.

    We have a quilt with a Double Happiness character on our bed.
