    Here's one I made for my son who likes batiks and blue. I loved it so much I made one for myself.

    The pattern is Gumballs and you can buy it at Stitchin' Heaven.

    I taught a class on this quilt. And now, as I think of it, I have one pattern that was left over. If you would like the pattern, just PM me. First one gets the pattern free, postage included. Offer ends January 29 @ 7 p.m. EST. (That's just so people don't keep PM-ing me! I'm sure it will be gone in a few minutes!)
    I'm sure someone is the lucky receipient by now. Fantasic quilt. Was that your own design?

    No, it was a pattern by Deb Luttrell of Stitch' Heaven, a quilt shop in Quitman, TX. Isn't it great?

    hahaha... that is so funny. I have the same problem.

    I had to start up my own company selling Batiks just so I could afford to keep up my Batik Habit.

    It's very important to buy the right quality fabric. You can never tell at the store front.

    PM me and I'll give you a great source.

    (3) "Stained Glass Braid" (70x93) - I made this in a workshop taught by Jane Hardy Miller, author of French Braid Quilts. No, I didn't follow the rules but made a quilt I really, really liked. I do an "honest" French Braid quilt with proper gradation another time.
    They are truely lovely. Where do you source your material?

    I started going there for fabric to make some western shirts and became an addict. Took a quilting class call SW techniques that taught. 14 techniues in a 6 block wall hanging. Had never quilted before. At the end of the class I joined 4 of thrie BOMs. HAVE STARTED ALL BUT HAVE FINISHED NONE, found 1 class didn't make me good. I started working on one block at a time, doing 2 the same and 2 mirrored adding sashing and borders and had a SW baby quilt. I wish I had been taking pictures. I soon found when I went to craft shows I was the only one doing SW baby quilts. I quess when I have done all the blocks from the 4 Boms into baby quilts I will be brave enough to do the quits as they were meant to be. I find my coyote and my buffals are the first to go followd by the fetish bear. That's the bear with the heart arrow through the body of the bear. They keep telling me a the shop I need to stop buying as a sewer and start buying as a quilt.

    Are the batiks in Connecting Threads and Keepsake Quilting catalogs good batiks? it sounds like you have to be careful about buying them. JoAnn's is really my only local store for quilting fabric and has some batiks.

    Your quilt is amazing. So vibrant and colourful. It must have been quite a project. How long did it take you?

    I can't seem to look at anything but Batiks. It's like no other fabrics are in the quilt shops.
    Your quilt is just "Beautiful" ,a true work of art. Thanks for sharing!
    Wow... they are amazing quilts. The second one looks very much like the Australian Opera House.

    Are you from Australia?

    You are not alone.... It's very hard to tell with some batiks. Sometimes it doesn't even matter which side you use. It all comes down to the fact that the majority of Batiks are dyed all the way through. The best advice I can give you is to use which side you think is best.

    The design came from the book called Quiltagami by Mary Jo Hiney. She does some lovely designs.

    Lynn,

    Art comes from the heart. Don't fear other people's judgement. A non-quilter will not understand so don't put too much effort into trying to please them. Just do your quilt and post it in here were people understand and can truley appreeciate it.
