This is a quilt got a friend that likes bling. We had looked at various patterned together and none of them met her taste in shinny. One day at the local markets there was a lady selling these Thai Silk (rayon????) bed spreads. I over-locked the edges due to fraying. Then I simply quilted along the straight lines in the fabric (including going up and down on the lines in between the elephants. The backing is cotton which means that it will not constantly slip off the bed!!!!
It is just what she wanted - sometimes simple is best.
