"I’m a hoarder of antique silk fabric. If I’ve used silk in a quilt or another project I keep all the scraps as they’re usually too beautiful to throw away; but also because it feels inherently wrong to throw out something that somebody else has spent so much time and skill making. I wanted to use these scraps to make something precious. A quilt would take far too long with so many small pieces, so I thought a wheat bag would be perfect." Cassandra Ellis.
