The long history of silk is shrouded in the mystique of the Silk Road that connected the Chinese Empire in the Far East with the Greek and Roman Empires on the European continent. Stories of adventure, like thse of the legendary journeys of Marco Polo, and mysterious tales of silk's origins in ancient China all contributed to a fascination with silk and the sericulture process that has endured through the centuries and spread throughout the world. Quilting is an art with a rich cultural heritage of its own, and creating quilts using silk is a prefect melding of two traditions that will endure for generations to come. Through entrancing images and lyrical text, Silk Quilts invites you to follow this amazing journey from the Silk Road into the modern quilter's studio.
