    I finally finished the hand quiliting on this compas quilt. All batiks made it a bear to quilt but I love it. Also finished, what my daughter calls, my hippie quilt. Very colorful.

    Are batiks harder to quilt? Why?

    I think the batiks have closer threads and the dyes are different. They don't have as much give as the regular fabrics. In addition, the compass points create more layers to go through in that area.

    I really like both of your quilts! The mariner compass is my all time favorite quilt to see. Love the colors and layout of the hippie quilt too!

    Your Compass quilt is gorgeous. Great job of piecing and quilting. Being a "bright" person (color, that is), I also love your hippie quilt. Good job and thanks for sharing them with us.
