Making Silk Ribbon

This is an experiment. I wanted wide silk ribbon for the flowers at the base of the Spring Tree quilt I am working on. I did not have time to order it, and actually I doubt it comes 1" wide, which is the size I thought I would need. I decided to make my own. I dyed a yard and a half of China silk using Procion MX Golden Yellow.

The dyed fabric was cut into bias strips 1" wide.
I will use this to create the flower petals - silk ribbon embroidery.
