One of my friends paints gorgeous flowers on silk. She does not however sew a stitch. I had the pleasure of turning several of her pieces that were tucked away in a drawer into wall hangings. I quilted the fabric to give the flowers some definition and made sleeves to insert dowels at the top and bottom (for weight to make them hang straight.) We were both happy with the finished pieces. I don't have a good photo of one done, but hope to have a picture of them hanging in their home! Later.
Here are some details while in progress (with basting still in):
