It's definitely not traditional. I've never worked with batiks before. I actually don't have more than 2 or 3 in my stash. I always thought they were so stiff and would be hard to get a needle through. Wanda was kind enough to send me some samples to try. I used them in this quilt. I have a quilting friend Joan who has a huge stash of every type of fabric. She gave me a stack of scraps from her batiks. I even went out & bought a kaleidoscope ruler so I could more easily cut the little triangles for these 4" blocks.
I left it on my design wall for a couple of days to decide about a border and how I would eventually quilt it. This morning, sipping my coffee I spotted a boo boo. It never fails to happen. Do you see it?
Now normally, I would just say the heck with it and leave it as is but.......since this is a small quilt the mistake can't hide as easily as it would in a large quilt. I did a little frogging and fixed it.
Ahhh, that's better.
Now I still have to decide on a border. Or maybe I should make the black framing strip wider. I'm not sure. Any suggestions?
My leader ender project this week was 2 little pink doll quilts for 2 little girls who need new blankets for their dollies.
I am a complete failure at doing leader/enders. The always turn into primary projects. I've picked a new one.......multi-colored 3" 9 patches. I need about 500 or so for the quilt I'm planning.
