Batiks – I have six bins! They are all pieces, no yardage – some fat quarter size and just a few half yards. It seemed like another scrappy was in order. There are 3 different blocks. I chose the pieces randomly. With batiks this method just works. I did have the brown for the sashing and then had to buy the gold. I’ll admit, when it was finished I wasn’t in love with this quilt. However, when my son saw it he voiced how much he liked it and would love to have it. Yup – it now lives with him! Photographing this quilt helped me embrace it a little more.
I love the way the shadows play on all the different colors and patterns. I really do like the pattern the long arm quilter chose. The curves work with all the squares.
There was a lot of sewing done in this quilt, and I’m so glad it’s found a home where it’s really appreciated. And the six bins of batiks? Still full – can’t tell that anything was taken out.
It has been a glorious spring in the garden. The ferns are in full and I am amazed that the hellebores are still in bloom. The Jack-in-the-Pulpits are the largest they have ever been! The azaleas bloom in various stages and it will be sad when they are all gone in a month.
These are views from my back deck – am so glad you can’t see the weeds from this distance!
