Lucky me....recently my generous friend Helen reorganized and reduced her stash....and sent me two huge boxes of batiks. Lucky really doesn't describe this windfall.....fabulous friend is a better description!
But who couldn't resist doing something with the candy store of batiks I now had available? My nephew's daughter loves pinks and purples.....though she's only in early grade school....perhaps it's time to get her interested in quilting?
Unfortunately, I live in NC and she lives in WI.....so I'm doing the work...hopefully she'll love and cherish the quilt. Being a bit of an "A" type personality, I pretty much cut and stitched only a few blocks at a time, arranging them on the design wall as I went.
......this is my kind of patchwork.....no real measuring...make some big blocks with 3 patches, then fill in with smaller ones till it reaches the desired size. Hear me cheering?!?
Of course.....now it will need to be backed and quilted.....and I am planning on getting to that soon....really I am.
