Silk Road

Silk Road
By Snow Leopard Designs for Free Spirit

The Silk Road was an ancient route that connected China and Southeast Asia with Southern Europe. It originated in the Chinese Han dynasty when it was the principal route for transporting the beautifully woven Chinese silks to the Western world. The Silk Road also played a significant part in the spread of art and culture to the countries found along the route, including: China, Japan, Korea, India, Persia and Turkey. With this new collection from Snow Leopard Designs, I am seeking to develop this beautiful art from these far away exotic cultures. The designs are inspired by the wonderful Ming dynasty Chinese silk brocades as well as tree of life designs from the Indian subcontinent and exotic silk ikat weaves from the Middle East. I hope that this new collection will help preserve these ancient artistic traditions and bring a sense of the mystical journey to the East into your homes and craft projects.

Silk Road: River Dragon Tile Quilt Kit

Ref: 8306KT

In stock

This Tile quilt makes a great throw for a bed or sofa. It takes advantage of some of the big design repeats in the Silk Road collection with just 20 patches making up the top of this 42" x 54" quilt. It is a design that lets the fabric “do the talking”: three of the blocks are 18" square!

The kit includes nine prints from the Silk Road collection cut as Fat Quarters plus a 78cm “panel” of the fabulous dragon design (refer to 8306-12 for more details), a coordinating print for the binding plus instructions. It’s quick and easy to make with just two inset (partial) seams, so suitable for any skill level from confident beginner.

Although not included as detailed instructions there are examples in the photographs of two cushions made using the remaining dragon print and offcuts from the other fabrics, pieced as strips.

At 42" wide, if you are careful you can back this with a single drop of a regular patchwork fabric that has a nominal width of 42"-44". In our example quilt, pieced and quilted by Stuart Hillard, Stuart used a 108" wide quilt back called Circle Play (7593-2).

This fabulous Dragon measures approximately 32cm high by 45cm wide (12.5" x 18"), not including the peonies that surround it. The design is repeated twice across the width of the fabric, but is offset by half the depth of the dragon design. Please note that this fabric is not sold in our usual 25cm units, but by a unit of 78cm. One 78cm unit gives three complete dragons, two down one half of the length and one down the other half of the length (with half a dragon at each end).
