This quilt was sewn late last Spring, it is now quilted and bound. It was made with fabrics from Madison Manor and Dovetails 1 batiks.
I used the 1″ x 2″ Bloc_Loc ruler to square up the Flying Geese. I do not plan to pattern this quilt, just showing how beautiful the Jo prints go with the Jo Dovetails 1 batiks. Ok, it sort of surprised me too, but then I should know it would work, right? I felt it would work, and was so happy when it did work out even better than I thought. Are you laughing with me?
And a closer look:
I love what the stripe does for the quilt plus the beautiful paisley border. The batiks add a softness that is beautiful and I find interesting to be sewing outside my normal box and liking what I see.
Don’t be thinking old dog, new tricks, OK?
We should all try something new from time to time. Are you ready? !!!!
FYI – I did pre-wash the batiks with the Shout color catchers – was advised to do it by my friend Candy in KC. The batiks are soft before washing and divine after.
