    This quilt was made from a kit, all the pieces were pre-cut. Good thing because I NEVER would have made it otherwise! It's quilted with a variegated thread.

    I've attached two views because I can't decide which way to hang it. Please tell me if you prefer it horizontal or vertical!

    Fantastic job! I like it either way, but forced to the wall would do the vertical.

    Is this a John Flynn precut kit? I did the Wheel of Mystery and loved the way the batiks didn't ravel. I just received my set of J.F. acrylic templates so I can work on a sampler block for our guild friendship exchange.

    Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree that it should go vertical. It is absolutely beautiful. I've always wanted to make this pattern but haven't gotten around to it yet. Was it super hard?

    Beautiful job! Prefer the horizontal position best as the focus is lost in the vertical view. Looks good either way though. :-D :-D

    Wowzers! That is gorgeous. I like horizontal, but turned upside down.

    No, it wasn't super hard as all the pieces were cut for me. Laying it out was more difficult than the sewing.

    I like the first one best. It looks like ribbons are entwined or weaving through each other. Very Pretty. The other does not look like that to my eyes.

    I agree, pre-cut was the way to go with this one. You've done a beautiful job on this quilt. It's the first storm at sea I've seen in batik. It gives the design a whole new look and I love it.
