    I love this quilt!

    It is so pretty the colors are so vivid saturated....I love color in all forms..but there has to be something said for a batik quilt! That is why we love them so!

    I quilted this with a variegated thread ...I never tire of the fern design with batiks...it is so earthy and striking.....I also quilted half leaves in both the borders....gives it some interest and blends in with the rest of the quilt.

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA. The batting is black warm and natural.

    Thanks for looking!
