It's not every day, or even every week, that my studio is blessed with a quilt as beautiful as this one. There are so many different batiks that it makes my eyes want to keep roving over the surface until I discover them all.
The texture of "Dazzle" and the shimmer of "Honey Gold" are just enough of a design element - without detracting from the quilt itself.
All that remains for me to do today is to attach the binding to the front of this quilt so that my customer can attach it by hand to the back.
As promised, here is a picture of the beautiful SewBatik wide back fabric:
My Spring quiltmaking class ended yesterday. My two students and I have met each week for a couple of months and we've worked our way through a Log Cabin quilt, using Eleanor Burns' "Quilt in a Day" book.
They each chose completely different fabrics and colorways, falling in love with them even more as their quilt tops came together.
My dear neighbor chose lime green and purple.
And her dear Daughter-in-Law chose red, gold and forest green.
There is an enthusiastic mix of trepidation and excitement between them...
