    Here's a couple of pics of a wall hanging that I'm working on. If you've seen some of my previous projects, you know that this is really quite a departure for me from the traditional things I've done. It's done in batiks and is based on a quilt in the book "Strips 'n Curves" by Louisa L. Smith. When finished, it will measure about 50" x 42". This has been a LOT of fun working on and I'm enjoying the "artsy" aspect of it. I used to paint years ago, so this is a lot like using fabrics to paint. I still need to add the borders and will then start quilting it. I've decided that I really like piecing curves. :)

    I love it! How do you plan to quilt it? I've been gettting the itch to do curves too. Got to finish up Christmas presents before I can do another one for me.

    Did you use some of the Connecting Threads Batiks in this? If so, how do they compare with the other brands?
